    The spiderweb is amazing, so perfect. No wonder than a weaver came to visit anotherone!
    Those buttons are to die for.

      Velma – all the photos are fantastic. written technical details, of the Japanese textiles, which are the only ones I have any depth of knowledge of, have several rather obvious inaccuracies which are annoying. still the photos are worth the book alone. it’s spider season, I keep walking into webs in the garden, yuck!
