I love to read. Usually fiction. But when I began to research for a new book, I read several reviews of The Feather Thief that promised this non-fiction was a "true crime adventure." The fact that it was related to fly fishing (another of my random hobbies), I was sold. What I never expected this book to be was a source of creative inspiration. And yet, reading about the locales of the captured birds, the colors of the feathers, and the love for the art of fly tying all have me excited to jump out of vacation mode and back into design. I highly recommend The Feather Thief.
