This is a stunningly beautiful, comprehensive book featuring work by the best fibre and textile artists currently practising in New Zealand. Includes portraits of ten artists in their studio or workspace. It covers a wide range of textile crafts, from finely detailed lace and woven beading to flax weaving and full-scale fabric art in public places, created by around 60 artists as geographically far-flung as Kerikeri and Queenstown. Approximately 150 different objects have been photographed, and the artists are alphabetically arranged so the different artforms are scattered throughout, giving colour and flavour to the book. This book showcases the very best of what New Zealand's textile and fibre artists are doing today, and fills a gap in the market; many New Zealanders are passionate about textile and fibre art and are poorly served by current books. STITCH: CONTEMPORARY NEW ZEALAND TEXTILE ARTISTS focuses on the objects and their makers. Each object is lovingly photographed and the book design honours these objects and gives ample space to them.

About the Author

The text is by Ann Packer, who has been documenting craft and artists for over 15 years, and the objects are photographed by the highly-regarded Croydon Studios with the portraits having been photographed by rising star Joanna Caird.
