Ok, that sounds dramatic. In some ways it's true. I have decided to let go of some of my treasured fiber-related books. I am selling classic, collector's books on overshot weavings. Of Coverlets: the Legacies, the Weavers, by Wilson and Turner is a huge coffee-table size tome that is rich with photos and text. 'Keep Me Warm Night': Early Weaving in eastern Canada (reserved) is another take on overshot and other techniques with lots of wonderful photos and charts.
Probably the hardest one to let go of is Great Tapestries: The Web of History from 12th to the 20th Century edited byJoseph Jobe'. I loved the Aubusson tapestry technique that I began to learn from John Pierre Larochette . I drooled over the gorgeous pieces in this book.
I feel like someone else should enjoy these books now. My family really has not much appreciation for the richness in them.
I am beginning to list them on Amazon. If by chance anyone out there is interested, please let me know.
P. S. These are my IPhone Photos. No Library of Congress shots available that I can find.
