Happy New Year! A new tapestry book to mention...

My New Year began in a lovely way since my copy of a book I'd ordered arrived yesterday.  It's Joanne Soroka's book, Tapestry Weaving: Design and Technique.  It's published by The Crowood Press in the UK.  Here's a link to the place from which I ordered it at The Book Depository.

The book has wonderful photos of many of Soroka's tapestries along with those of a number of other tapestry artists working currently.  Historical aspects of tapestry are briefly touched upon and there are enough references mentioned to get one going on exploration for further information, if desired.  I'm glad to add it to my library and recommend it as an inspirational and informative resource.
