Gossamer Days : Spiders, Humans and Their Threads Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


What happens when one making animal meets another? Gossamer Days explores the strange web of spider-human relationships.

Artist and writer Eleanor Morgan has spent a decade working with spiders and their silk.

Her explorations have led her in search of one of the world?s largest web weaving spiders, from the rooftops of Oxford University to a garage in Sussex.

Her weaving and drawing with spider silk drew her to research the lost history of Europe?s attempt to create a spider silk weaving industry.

Here, she details her findings from a life unusually spent.
