Readable, with enough technical insight to satisfy an academic of professional audience and enough explanation to reach a more casual reader. Carefully chosen photographs (and especially the detail shots) help clear up any ambiguities and pique the reader's curiosity. Selvedge This book is a visual feast for textile enthusiasts... [It] is an overview of contemporary weaving and is a resource for anyone interested in fashion, interiors, and art. Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot
