 Author: Constantine, Mildred and Jack Lenor Larson  Book Category: General fiber  Publisher: Van Nostrand Reinhold Company  Published: 1972

Reprinted in the 80s, paperback used is $70.00, library has special edition to check out. Profiles of fiber artists of the time, and discussions of the emergence of fiber art. From an Amazon review: “…This is NOT just a coffee table book for weaver hipsters. The introduction shines a light on the context in which this textile movement emerged. This book shows the monumental commitment to textiles, fibre and weaving unparalleled in any other book.” And “These are the works that moved fiber from Grandma’s rocking chair into galleries and museums.”
