Alastair Morton and Edinburgh Weavers : Visionary Textiles and Modern Art, Hardback Book

Alastair Morton and Edinburgh Weavers : Visionary Textiles and Modern Art Hardback

Description

Edinburgh Weavers was one of the most important textile companies of the twentieth century.

Alastair Morton, visionary art director of the company, commissioned a remarkable series of textiles from leading British artists, including Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Elisabeth Frink, as well artist-designers, such as Marion Dorn, Ashley Havinden and Lucienne Day.

Morton was also a gifted artist, textile designer and weaver in his own right.

This long overdue study traces his wide-ranging career and records the history of Edinburgh Weavers and the glorious textiles it produced.

Drawing on the V&A's extensive archive this impressive book features over 300 images of artists' textiles unparalleled in quality and scope and is an invaluable resource.
