KIRKUS REVIEW

Report repeated from the August 1st bulletin, when scheduled for fall publication, as follows: ""By the author of Shuttle craft Book of American Hand Weaving (revised 1951) this furthers the hobby by its coverage of different types of weaving, patterns, and nationalities. Here is card weaving. ""Inkles"", turned weaving, braiding and knotting, belt weaves (two warp and double faced), techniques and designs from South America, Africa, Guatemala, etc. The history of the weaving, the equipment needed, the materials used and the types of weaving produced, the set-up (when used, of the loom), colors, variations, tricks and the finishes are included in each section and the final chapter on handicraft in occupational therapy indicates a helpful usage of this craft. Diagrams in loom drafts and 8 full page illustrations in color of representative textiles. A work book for teachers and student.
