1970s weavings

these scans are from the book "weaving off-loom," first published in 1973. yes, my taste level is questionable, but i loved it! i think that macrame has the potential of being reinvented as an elegant, interesting medium.
i'm glad the photos in the book are black and white... i imagine the color schemes would have been quite jarring.

the one on the left is 6 feet long!

this is a room divider... amazing!

i hope some crafter bought these illustrations to life at some point...


this whole page is great... a woven lampshade with beads! a woven plant holder with gourd! a contemplation tunnel!
