In this latest edition we travel through the surprising and colourful world of textile art. Over 800 photographs display the most beautiful work of 160 artists from across the globe. This is a unique collection of a great variety of worldwide textile art joined in one book.
Make your acquaintance with the many facets of textile art and allow yourself to be inspired by fairy-tale embroidery, robust twine works, art to wear, fine and coarse crocheting, felting in an explosion of colour or in subdued natural shades, innovative mixed media, weaving works with a message, tough-looking knit-works, quilts that make you smile . . . the possibilities with textile know no boundaries.
‘TextileArt around the world’ is the international sequel to ‘Textile is alive!’, which is an earlier publication displaying works from Dutch and Belgian textile artists.
Each page is a new introduction to an artist. Besides many images of textile art, you will also find a portrait photograph, the web address, country of origin and applied techniques. The artist also tells you in a few words what textile means to him/her. Due to the international character of the book, the text is in three languages: English, German and Dutch.
