Lily Spotlight: New Books at Milk!

Books are amazing, and that is why we decided to get some in for our Victoria store, the Milkman's Daughter. There's nothing more inspiring that looking at a good book; what better to go with your new Smoking Lily skirt than a nice book? I guess they sometimes make half decent gifts as well (sarcasm: books make awesome presents!).

Here are a few of the titles that are now available for purchase. You'll find we focused in on a few categories: fashion design and crafting (imagine that!), nature and education, children's stories, a book on bread, and even bikes! I am SO excited. They are all from Raincoast books, so you can be sure of their superior quality and awesomeness.

Shadow, by Suzy Lee

A whimsical cute children's book about a little girl with a big imagination. The images are all done by Suzy herself.

Speak Italian, by Bruno Munari

Originally published in 1958, this book with help you decipher not only the language but the gestures Italians are so famous for. Well humored and educational.

Creative Inc., by Meg Mateo and Joy Deangdeelert

These two awesome women explain everything you need to know about starting your own creative business. Joy Deangdeelert is also of the blog, "Oh Joy," which is a studio favourite here at Lily.

Tartine Bread, by Chad Robertson

It's an awesome book about bread! What more do we need to say? The guy who wrote this is also the co-owner of Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, where some people say he makes the best bread in the world.

The Native Trees Of Canada, by Leanne Shapton

A very cool book that is both artistically inspiring and going to teach you a thing or two about our trees. All of the images are of her paintings, using very bold colours and loose form.
