About the Book
Marolyn Stanley has produced a remarkable range of work in a decade of quilting. This beautiful 13" x 11" book features thirty six of her finest quilts, in full page photographs. These colorful, modern quilts really jump off the page, thanks to the elegant book design by Bay Area artist Yuki Kawaguchi. Author Bob Stanley provides commentary on each quilt, and a preface about his mother's artistic journey.
Bob Stanley teaches creative writing and English composition at CSU Sacramento and Sacramento City College. Bob’s poems have been published in various journals and have won a number of awards including the "California Focus on Writers" first prize for poetry in 2006. Bob is President of the Sacramento Poetry Center, and he edited the California Arts Council's 2009 poetry anthology entitled "Sometimes in the Open." He and his wife Joyce have four children and live in Sacramento. Bob’s first book of poems, "Walt Whitman Orders a Cheeseburger," will be published by Rattlesnake Press in the spring of 2009.
