This book is filled with information about weaving tapestries "outside-the-box". By this we mean, non-rectangular tapestries. Such tapestries can be shaped and lie flat on the wall or they can be three dimensional.
There are many ways to weave a non-rectangular tapestry: shaping the loom itself, using weave structures that cause the weaving to become shaped, and using scaffolds and other devices to hold areas of warp that are then manipulated into 3-dimensional shapes when the weaving is finished. Naturally, these types of processes require some special finishing techniques; and this book covers those as well.
If you want a truly creative approach to this centuries old medium, this is the book for you.
