Format: Paperback
A beautifully written book, with plenty of illustrations. Nancy Spies lists 1500 years worth of brocaded table weaving finds, by area. She provides patterns, and plenty of very detailed background information and instructions. An absolute must buy for any tablet weaver who has an interest in brocaded work!

Excellent Resource for Historical Recreation 26 Oct. 2000
By Melinda - Published on
Format: Paperback
The first hundred pages of this ~300 page book deal with the history of tabletwoven bands: who made them and why, where they were used, design sources, historical tablets and looms, and some technical information about the bands. The next ~170 pages lists historical bands. Each listing gives culture, time-period, materials, and any other information available. Many (most?) also have a pattern for the design. The last couple dozen pages are the note and bibliography. I found this to be an excellent source of both general and specific information about historical tablet-woven bands. It is also obviously aimed at those who wish to recreate for themselves something documentably from times long ago.

Fantastic book; get the PDF straight from the author 13 Dec. 2013
By Dena - Published on
Format: Paperback
I thought that this was a long-out-of-print and very-rare book, to explain the used prices. Turns out you don't need to pay someone over $100 to get a used copy. The author is still selling the PDF from her own site; it's $12 in Paypal and an email to let her know which book you want, and she's very friendly.

The book itself is chock full of information and I'm looking forward to the chance to finish studying it!
