Book Description

1 Oct 2005 Glasgow School of Art
This is a glorious visual tour through the textiles collection in the Glasgow School of Art's archives. The textiles reflect not only the work of teachers and students of the GSA but also large gifts from a number of collections. The result is a wide selection of work ranging from 17th stumpwork to traditional Scandinavian designs, 1930s peices by Austrian artist Emmy Zweybruck, jacquard woven samples from Donalds of Dundee to modernist work of the 1930s and pieces from students of the 1990s. All in all, this is a major textiles collection and this first book is an important record of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars a delight! 10 Mar 2011
This book has wonderful photographs of some of the archive textile pieces held by Glasgow School of Art. Each photograph has a brief description of who made each piece and where it was made. It includes one or two pieces by famous glasgow artists such as Ann Macbeth, Jessie Newberry and Margaret Macdonald but also many other pieces. Quite simply a delight!
