(Weaver's journal Monograph 4)
Adele Cahlander (1980)
Used for battle, farming, hunting and in religous ceremonies, evidence has shown that slings have been used almost everywhere in the world by primitive cultures. This book includes photos and patterns of slings and braids used by the Andean herders from pre-Incan times to the present day. The author examines the history, use and design of various types, classifies them and shows the techniques needed to reproduce many of the designs shown. Extensively illustrated with black & white and colour photos showing examples and technique, this is a fascinating glimpse into one aspect of an ancient culture.
