Written by Anni Albers, one of the twentieth century’s leading textile artists, On Weaving is a luminous meditation on the art of weaving, its history, its tools and techniques, and its implications for modern design. First published in 1965 and now updated with full-color photos and critical essays on Albers and her career, On Weaving highlights the importance of material awareness and the creative leaps that occur when design problems are tackled by hand. Albers' lucid and engaging prose is illustrated with extraordinary images, from hand-drawn diagrams to close-ups of pre-Columbian textiles, as well as illuminating examples of her own work. This glorious 272-page hardcover classic is truly an invaluable source of information and inspiration!
