"Good buy for the adventurous or curious weaver" according to Lynda Delallo. I bought this book not being sure if there would be enough content to justify the price. This book is great! There is a very small section on basics, which I like since some books include so much basic information that it takes up half the book. There are all kinds of interesting techniques and great color photos of the weavings. I recommend this book if you are interested in weaving that is beyond ordinary.. "Idea Book for Weavers" according to Beryl A. Moody. Woven Textile Design is a big, beautifully illustrated idea book for weavers. From plain weave on two shafts to 16 shaft draft ideas, Jan Shenton doesn't leave anyone out in the cold. For me, the highlights of this book are warp and weft distortions, extra warp and weft patterning, seersucker, patterned double weave and weaving horizontal pleats (not for the faint of heart). There are plenty of other techniques and ideas presented in addition to those mentioned, making it suitable for weavers of all levels of experience to learn something new. The book is loaded with col. More design less newbie information I was really excited about this book but was disappointed in the lack of design methods. Guess it would be great for a beginning weaver as she goes over all the basic structure of weaves. 5 pages of design information and all the rest on different weaving structures.Most of the pages prior to to those 5 pages is also basic weaving that can be found in multiple books already published. Will either sell, donate or give this one away.
