Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Weaving and knitting may not seem to be likely techniques for metalworkers, but fine wire and strips of metal can be made pliable enough to be worked this way. Fisch gives detailed instructions for metal weaving, knitting, crocheting, braiding, lacemaking, and basketry. A section of historical examples and a pictorial survey of works by contemporary artists is included. This book would have been improved with more color photographs to bring out contrasts, but it is excellent otherwise.
