I'm so excited about this book I threw up a bunch of Images so you can look inside. This is quite a hefty book, jam-packed with vivid photography showing just how luscious these tapestries are, even centuries old. You can't even make it out of the Introduction before you know all about warp and weft, upright and horizontal looms and why the intricacy of the patterns causes a multitude of problems for weaving: a miniscule slit accompanies every color change. Put enough of these slits together and they weaken the tapestry and they become visible. The most ingenious designers incorporate slits on the diagonal to enhance the pattern. Diagonal slits are the least weak.

The author takes us all over the world and discusses the various areas' weaving, designs, techniques and finished products in an appealing and engaging way. The chapters are unexpected. Whereas most books of this sort include Medieval & Gothic, and Renaissance European tapestries, this book begins halfway through with the 19th and into the 20th century. Both Modern and Contemporary tapestries get their own chapter. Finally, in a little bit of a U-turn, the author includes Tribal Tapestry Weaves. I have included Images from each chapter.

The final pages of the book discuss how to buy and care for a tapestry, where to find collections and how to commission a tapestry. There is also a really good pictorial glossary, a bibliography and index. It's hard to say if this book is more pretty or more informative. It's lovely that there's a contest. Highly, highly recommended.
Sorry, in June 2013, Amazon saw fit to remove customer images from the product pages.
