Marchesa Casati (update)

In my post of 6th Nov 09. I wrote about the delight of Chris's photograph of my 'Medusa' mask appearing in the new book 'Portraits of a Muse' about the delicious Marchesa Casati!  Well I now have a copy of the book in my hot and trembling hand and am even more delighted :)

I am so thrilled that the picture has a full page all to itself ! I wasn't expecting that at all. I thought we might just be tucked away somewhere ;) There's a little bit of blurb about me and the Marchesa's influence on my masks and both Chris and I get a lovely mention in the special thank you section :)

The book itself is gorgeous. A large format art book lavishly illustrated with loads of amazing pictures,  paintings and photos. I shall go and run around excitedly a bit more now ;)

Edit: Oops... I thought I'd missed something out, trust me to forget ;) Thank you Laetitia :)))x
