Swedish Textile Art: Traditional Marriage Weavings from Scaniaby Viveka Hansen
Pub. Date: 04/23/2005
Publisher: Oxford University Press
This is the first book for more than a decade to present some of the best examples of textile art from southern Sweden, small panels that were mostly made for wedding ceremonies. The 95 textiles from the Nasser D. Khalili Collection illustrated in the sumptuous colour plates of this volume are woven in a variety of techniques, and display the full range of the traditional designs of Scanian marriage weavings. The main text is written by Viveka Hansen, one of the world's leading authorities on Swedish textiles, and is accompanied by an introduction by Michael Frances that highlights the international appeal of Swedish textile art, placing it in a wider context.
