Book Description Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1970. Soft cover. Condition: New. New Design in Weaving. By Donald J. Willcox. Published by Van Nostrand Reinhold. 1970. ISBN 0442294743. New 8 x 8 inches softcover. 128 Pages. Color & b/w plates. Further Reading. Resources. PREFACE: "The weaver is a controversial figure, but is surrounded by a wall of overnourished truisms. So, in the face of change it is altogether healthy that they be re-examined. This book does that, and it also explores further the potentials within the concept of interlacing strands-this concept of weaving. The opinions expressed here are the result of a year and a half of research. I have visited over five hundred weavers, mostly Scandinavian, in schools, workshops, galleries, and museums. I have also sat and talked with them-congenially, over coffee and pastry-about their craft. The result, I think, is not restricted by national borders, but is directed to weavers everywhere and at every level." --- Orders are shipped with a printed sale transaction - no exceptions.
