Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Get inspired with this international guide to folk textile art, featuring work from the UK, USA, Mongolia, China, Scandinavia, and more!
Discover a world of traditional motifs used in textile folk art, and see how contemporary textile artists incorporate these motifs into their own work. Explore handmade mementos and souvenirs from the UK and USA; Scandinavian textile art, with an emphasis on modern screenprinting and embroidery; the influence of nomadic cultures; and the internationally popular tree symbol. Anne Kelly’s beautiful step-by-step projects include colorful tea towels documenting her travels in Australia and New Zealand, a family tree using photo transfers and appliqué, folding books, small collages with Nordic imagery, lettering samplers, pouches, and jewelry.

Anne Kelly’s textile work is exhibited widely, including in the Vatican Collection in Rome and the Textile Museum of Canada in Toronto. She was artist-in-residence at Sussex Prairies Garden in West Sussex and exhibited at the international World of Threads Festival and the Prague Patchwork Meeting. She is the author of Textile Nature and coauthor of Connected Cloth, both published by Batsford.
