Likely in April 2017, this book will be published:

Tapestry of Tales - Bermuda
by Amanda Temple

A book of portraits of [Bermudian] people at home, beautifully woven together by their stories.

As far as I understand it, Amanda Temple was visiting a few well-known Bermudian characters at home, including Heather Nova, or Johnny Barnes (unfortunately he died a few months ago), but also knocked at random doors, to talk with the people there, to make a portrait about them, and to photograph them in their homes. She has been to 74 Bermudian homes and photographed nearly 100 people.

Amanda Temple is a professional photographer, and in her blog I found out she is the sister of Sacha Blackburne, who has the same profession and made many promotional pictures of Heather already.

So people who are interested in Bermudian people, but also Bermudian homes will most likely enjoy this book. Plus, Heather will also be portrayed.

The book is not cheap, but as i said, Iím really very interested in it, not only because of Heather, so I decided to purchase a copy. Iíve asked Gerd yesterday about ordering and he told me he already had at the end of April, but I guess the shipping will take some time. If there are any news about Heather we donít know yet in the book, Iíll let you know!

I got my copy today from Bermuda. Wow, exactly on Heather Birthday! I ordered end of April. It was sent out June 26th, at least the stamp is from that date.Te book is beautiful, worth to read every word and to look and understand and to respect all those lifes in Bermuda. There are no page numbers or any hint where to look for a specific person. This book is meant to be explored. wonderful! I found Heather in the 3rd quarter of the book. Beautiful pics. Most of them with the dogs.
Anyway, I hope I can deep dive in this book soon to discover everything about Bermudian people.

4 pages with Heather in this book. Very sweet ones, most of them with her dogs. Seems they are feeling very comfortable close to her. Makes me a bit jealous

Gosh, this beautiful book is just 25 dollars. Shipment to Germany just about 15$. I was about to order more than one book to tell my family what Bermuda is about. It seems you can order only one so, maybe one at a time.

Anyway, this book is so gorgeous and I highly recommend to order.

One book to Germany with shipment is 36 Euro. Unbelievable!

I love the subjects, too - palm trees and leaves and the cute, little treefrogs!

Oh well, I ordered five! Got them all already. Amanda was wondering if it was a mistake as of the numbers. I offered her to combine the shipping, to save her Indigo some money. I have to choose now to whom it is worth to make a special gift with this book! It is so wonderful and special. Only special people deserve and understand it.
