There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I didn't find many of the essays accessible, and I'm an artist. I wanted more examples of work and less self-indulgence. There's not much else to say.
Get from the library first if you really want to read it, and get some other (far less expensive) older books.

There is a whole chapter dedicated to the work the Staircase House Stitchers from Stockport ( of which I was one) did and I bought this book as a record to pass on to my family. But even if you don't know anybody involved in any of the works, it is a beautiful book to dip in and look at.
