Format: Hardcover
Unlike many crochet books, this book is not a pattern book filled with cryptic terminology. Instead, it aims to help you in developing your own creative style through building upon simple structures and techniques, leading to unique and beautiful results. The photographs of the author's and other artists' works will open your mind to many new possibilities inherent in crochet as an art form. Grab this book if you can find it - it's out of print but worth the search !

The first book that ever got me "free form" crocheting...back in 1973, and will always be my favorite crochet book. Fantastically different non-traditional crochet arrived during the intensive Fiber Arts movement of the 1960s, and this was one of very few books at the time showcasing new artists work. Using basic beginner stitches and easy, thoughtful tips , this book has photos ( many are lovely full color images) of art gallery worthy art garments, wall hangings, hats, sculpture and more, as well as clear drawn basic stitch diagrams.

This book does not have patterns or instructions on specific items but serves as 100% inspiration to those wanting to leave traditional crochet behind. The tips on how to approach this are easy approachable even if you have never crocheted before. If you are advanced, this book will still be a wonderful visual inspiration.

Long out of print, I lost my original copy , and recently replaced it via Amazon.

Format: Hardcover
It's one of the first books to show the artistic side of crochet, rather than provide patterns for afghans and booties, and it encourages the reader to come up with his or her own designs. Many fiber artists of the time are featured. Clear and easy diagrams, different stitches and techniques--a classic, and still one of my favorites.
