Gschwandtner is an artist and founder of KnitKnit, a limited-edition journal exploring the links between fine art and crafts. KnitKnitthe book is a fascinating read, profiling a new generation of art knitters motivated more by ideas than by the technical aspects of their craft. Artists profiled range from creative mainstream knitwear designers like Norah Gaughan, who bases many of her designs on abstract forms found in nature, to avant-garde artists like Dave Cole, who used heavy-duty construction equipment and knitting needles made of 25-foot aluminum poles to knit a 25' by 20' American flag. Each of the 25 knitters profiled has contributed an original project to the book to encourage the reader to explore the possibilities of knitting as an art form. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.
