Walter Foster Art Instruction.

More than 80 years ago, Walter T. Foster—a well-known artist, instructor, and collector—began producing self-help art instruction books from his home in Laguna Beach, California. He originally wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, shipped, and distributed them himself. Although Walter passed away in 1981 at the age of 90, his legacy continues. We have 25 original Walter Foster books available in our Attic store!  We wanted to share a few. Aren't the covers great? They have a cool retro feel to them.

This one reminds me…The Desert Botanical Garden's Spring Butterfly Exhibit is going on until May 8th. If you haven't already experienced this event, it is so worth it! It's almost magical as you stroll among hundreds of fluttering butterflies.
