Guatemala’s woven textiles are admired for their vibrant color combinations and boldness of design. This book reflects such richness and provides designers at all levels with inspiration for new and unexpected ways of using color and pattern in their own work. Over twenty textiles are explored in a series of photographs to reveal a wealth of motifs from fruit and flowers to birds and beasts, as well as abstract and geometric designs and, more unusually, the two combined to startling effect.

In her enlightening text, Ann Hecht, herself a weaver, provides the background information to bring the pieces to life and clearly explains the full range of principle techniques employed. In addition, brief commentaries highlight the design features and a technical glossary supports the main text so you can rely on the book for eye-catching patterns as well as refer to it for specific information.

With over 100 color illustrations.
