Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Thittichai (Experimental Textiles), an established textile artist specializing in three-dimensional forms, presents a series of simple exercises designed to give readers a survey of textured fiber-based artwork, emphasizing process rather than finished projects. Many unconventional materials are featured, including newer synthetic fabrics and adhesives and recycled and found materials. Detailed photographs include varied examples of work by a dozen textile artists in addition to the author. Bridging crafts and fine arts, this book will have wide appeal.
