Of course, one thing I do when I am in France is to spend the first day (almost!) buried in FNAC in Nice. Though the two independent bookshops on the Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence are absolute heaven for textile-lovers. The biggest problem with books, of course, is...weight. I usually take a half-full suitcase, but there is still only so much one can gather. However, the good news is that you can obtain some of these books from Amazon.uk - and it is possible to order direct from Amazon.fr - they will deliver to you wherever you are. To digress a moment, I sometimes find cheaper versions of hard-to-find textile books on Amazon.jp and even with the delivery charges, I save money. So don't give up! I can recommend all these books. Sylvie Castellano, I adore. If you have yet to come across her books, do browse with her name, all her books are beautiful.
This book has been around for a little time, but for those of you who don't know it, it is worth a mention. You won't be disappointed.
