Egg Art

My siblings would always finish dying Easter eggs at least two hours before me. While they were fighting for control of the Atari in the next room, I was agonizing over my six annual masterpieces. How could I possibly top my fur-covered egg of ’84? Or the sublimely understated, lemon-scented egg of ’82? I was convinced that my works belonged in a museum somewhere, alongside Van Gogh or Picasso.

These days I have a better sense of where my works ultimately belong –in my stomach. Yet, I am still a big fan of people who take their egg art seriously. If you, too, are on a quest for your next great masterpiece, you can find wonderful books in our collection to inspire you.

Amazon Says: With more than 70 amazingly easy decorating techniques, there’s no “egg-scuse” for letting any egg go naked again, or waiting until Easter, because here are designs that work all year-round.
