About the Author
Ann Richards trained and worked as a biologist before going on to study woven textiles; her background in biology has strongly influenced her textile work, which often draws on form and function in nature. Her work has been exhibited widely, and over the past 20 years she has lectured and given workshops in the UK, Europe, Canada, and the United States. In 1989 she won First Prize (MITI Award) at the 4th International Textile Design Contest in Tokyo.

Top Customer Reviews
Most books cover structure as means to produce collapsed fabrics.
She thoroughly explains yarn counts, twist and gives formulas to establish yarn diameter and twist angle which will assist in choosing adequate yarns for your projects.
There are various chapters that cover adequate structures for collapse, yet it is not a recipe book. It presents structure information as a starting point for further developments.
The chapter on finishing the fabrics is well researched and explanations go beyond the usual wash and tumble dry.
The photos are another source of information as well as very inspirational.
All in all there is not a wasted filler page in this book i give it 5 thumbs up.
