Making textiles from paper is not a new phenomenon but currently the versatility and unusual properties of this fascinating material are being rediscovered by a whole new generation of textile artists.
This book presents the reader first with a brief history of paper textiles, and then proceeds to discuss the properties of paper fibres, and how to use them. It includes projects which guide the user through knitting and crocheting, and knotting techniques. These are followed by projects using plaiting and twisting methods including basketmaking, and finally the paper fibres are used for weaving and decorating stitching. The book ends with an international survey of some of the world's leading paper textile artists.
All in all this book provides a complete guide to this most fascinating subject. It should be a must on the bookshelves of everyone who is interested in textiles whether they are makers or not.
