Book review: Tapestry Weaving, by Kirsten Glasbrook

This is a great book for the beginning to intermediate tapestry artist. The layout is logical and systematic throughout. Perhaps the best feature of this book is the series of color photographs, which make her steps very easy to follow.

An excellent beginner's book for tapestry students - this was the very first book I bought when learning. It goes through the basics with excellent step-by-step photos, which are better than any other book I have come across since.

This is a great introduction to tapestry weaving. I was surprised how much I learned from the gallery of her work in the second half of this book. Great full color illustrations of different techniques - easy to follow.
