I have read most of the tapestry-weaving books in print or in my local university library and this is the one i turn to when i have a question. nancy harvey does a fantastic job of teaching the art and method of tapestry weaving from construction of a basic frame loom, to cartoon design, to finishing techniques. the book has good b&w illustrations and photos of the lessons, although larger photos would have been helpful-more like the wonderful color close-ups in kristen glassbrook's tapestry book. there are several teaching designs included in the book that are a pleasure to weave. harvey's lesson on how to weave a circle is priceless as i have not seen that technique so well covered in any other book. the color photos included in the gallery illustrate a wide variety of weaving styles and are inspiring. i would especially recommend this book for intermediate weavers who are ready to progress beyond the lessons in kristen glassbrook's excellent book.
