Acclaimed textile artist, teacher, and designer Anni Albers presents in this volume a visual, structural, and synesthetic exploration of the principles of the textile tradition that underlie the practice of weaving. In a series of technically– and conceptually–founded essays, Albers establishes a pragmatic theoretical framework for examination of foundations like the loom itself and early interlacing techniques, to elaborations on the implications and meaning implicit to weaving itself, in chapters like “Tactile Sensibility” and “Design as Visual Organization.” Including a slew of historical, technical, and work-related illustrations, Albers’ artistic practice is brought to life in this material-conscious, integrity-driven invitation to look at the weaver’s dilemmas and inspirations, as told by one of the most famous to use weaving in a context that challenges the definitions of craft, tradition, and fine art at this point in time.
