a wonderfull book both for the outstanding images of her large and small works combined with some insight into her remarkable career. The book itself is a handsome object ( a treasure).

I had read that it was "the most beautiful book in the world", so I had to see for myself.
After taking this book out from my university library and falling in love with it, I can say it really is!
It has been on my wish list for quite some time and has been worth waiting for.

A well done book ordered as a gift for my daughter who is a fibers major. It just took too long to get but well worth the wait.

That was the award this book received when it was first published in 2006.
As a graphic designer specialized in bookdesign I more or less tend to follow this quotation.
Tastes differ but this surely is a beauty indeed.

Four stars !

true to it's reputation, this book is the most beautiful book on my shelf. I hesitate to let anyone else touch it because of the beautiful matte white paper cover.
and then there's the INSIDE
full of beautiful color photos of her more intimate mini weavings. The images are almost to scale, as I've seen a few of them in person in museums. If you can't see them in person this is the next best thing!! image quality is great.
