Description

This beautiful and accessible book will deepen the understanding of anyone who loves textiles. It explores woven textiles thematically, through the work of contemporary artists and designers. Some make their art from unwoven threads, the raw material of which textiles are born. Others use digital technology so that elements of light, sound, and even motion are literally woven in the fabric. An excellent resource for everyone with an interest in contemporary woven textiles, this book features work by the following international selection of artists and designers:

Review quote

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 *
