Tapestry books and other resources
I'd like to see others note their suggestions about books and other resources for tapestry weaving. I've collected many over the past twenty five years but I'll start with a new book I've just gotten:
"The Thread's Course in Tapestry" by Mette Lise Rossing. You can find info about ordering it at www.billedvaevning.dk
Rebecca Mezoff gave a nice video review of the book at her blog and that's how I became interested in ordering it. In the preface, Ms. Rossing says "...(it) is a 'nerdy' book for anyone interested in weaving images. It can also be used by fabric weavers who wish to develop their decorative skills." The book is jam-packed with wonderfully clear drawn illustrations of many techniques and also had numerous color images of tapestries both old and new, details shown of many. At a quick glance (I just got the book yesterday!) it seems to be exceptionally comprehensive and I'm excited to have added it to my tapestry library collection.
