The first major publication to explore the prolific career of Kaffe Fassett, one of the most recognized names in contemporary craft and design
 
Kaffe Fassett (b. 1937) is one of the most recognized names in contemporary craft and design with work encompassing knitting, needlepoint, quilting, textile design, mosaic, painting, and drawing. Fassett’s sense of color and pattern has inspired makers around the world; his early successes include knitwear designs for fashion designers such as Bill Gibb and Missoni, and in more recent years he has collaborated with the luxury fashion house Coach. His inimitable eye can translate the most everyday of details into the basis for one of his colorful, sophisticated, maximalist designs.
 
This book explores Fassett’s career and work in context for the first time, highlighting and widening the scope of his output over more than five decades. Drawing on original artworks, photographs, and archival material, it illuminates the work of this distinctive, influential artist and designer. Essays from design and fashion historians sit alongside striking visual material and insightful interviews with Fassett that provide additional context about this prolific artist.
