    One thought on “On Weaving”

    1. This is a wonderful book: classic text by Anni Albers, gorgeous plates, and engaging essays. You don't have to be a weaver to love this one. Highly recommended.

    2. "Though elaborations are usually thought to be an advanced stage of work, they are often easy expansions from basic concepts. Intricacy and complexity are not, to my mind, high developments.

    3. Great book by Anni Albers. Examples of ancient weaving, her work as well as sketches. I really like the way she wrote, seems as though she is speaking directly to you as a friend.
