On Friday, September 17 from 5-7 pm the Page Bond Gallery will host an tail-end-of-summer book signing and reception for authors Carrie Nieman Culpepper and Janie Molster.

Co-authored by former Richmonder Culpepper and Liza Gershman, NANTUCKET: Classic American Style 30 miles out to sea (Images Publishing Group) features photographic portraits and environmental shots of islanders in their homes and at leisure pursuits, as well as watercolor illustrations of elements that shape signature Nantucket aesthetics. Both co-authors are long-time visitors to Nantucket and their visuals are complemented by essays on island customs, activities, and history that shape Nantucket’s unique culture. Culpepper is an award-winning journalist and brand strategist who covers culture, design and lifestyle around the world. Gershman (who will not be present) is an award-winning photographer and accomplished writer, specializing in lifestyle, food, travel and still life. Her clients include Canon USA, Williams-Sonoma, Restoration Hardware and Getty Images.

“The historical seaside village [of Nantucket] comes alive, casting spells on vacationers who enjoy the signature cottages, landscape, muted colors, beaches and sun.”  – R. Home


The Gallery’s second featured author, Richmond’s own Janie Molster, has become known over more than two decades for creating sophisticated and vibrant spaces that are also finely attuned to their occupants. In her debut monograph, House Dressing, Interiors for Colorful Living (The Monacelli Press), Molster reveals the secrets behind her ability to fashion uniquely felicitous interiors.

House Dressing combines Molster’s lively and thoughtful personal reflections on interiors she has created, along with texts on her design philosophy. The book invites readers into country cottages, riverside manses, and Molster’s own urban farmhouse – her personal design lab — as she recounts the story and describes her thinking behind each one. Insightful essays among the projects provide a Master Class on how to work with color, pattern, and texture to make spaces that are in turn bold, calm, glamorous, and comfortable, and always personal.

A longtime design favorite of the Southeast corridor, Molster now has clients across the country. She is a sought-after voice in the media, and she and her work have appeared in national and regional publications, including House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Veranda, Elle Décor, Architectural Digest, Virginia Living, Coastal Living, R.Home and Florida Design.
