The Techniques of Tablet Weaving by Peter Collingwood
To finally have this magnificent book available again is just wonderful. (This edition has been re-typeset and rearranged.)
We recommended it to serious tablet weavers and ambitious beginning students. No other English writer has been able to so clearly and thoroughly explore a complex technique. With photos of historic pieces, many diagrams, and clear text, the author delves so deeply into areas like double-face twill patterning, plain/twined weaves, brocades and patterned velvet, that you'll probably be starting a study group just to see what some of these patterns look like! Many black and white photos and illustrations accompany thorough discussion of history, methods, and plenty of inspiration.
