This book once accompanied the BBC Television series (of the same name), produced by Anna Jackson towards the end of the last century (gosh! it sounds odd saying that out loud!)
The book itself however, operates as a stand alone item and covers just about every aspect of weaving from a brief history dating back to the ancient Egyptians to the more sophisticated hand weaving machines used *today (c.1980)
The chapters range from: Fibres and Yarns, Spinning, Dyeing, Frame Looms, Tapestry weaving, Looms and equipment, Making a warp and dressing the loom, Weaving on a loom, weave variations, weaving on multiple shafts, Design, Rug weaving, etc. With clear diagrams and colour and black and white photographs throughout.
It is extremely thorough and very comprehensive; and I would have no hesitation in recommending this book as a good staring point for any novice or persons interested in the crafts. ( )
