An evocative and practical exploration of how travel can inform, inspire, and enhance textile art.

For those with a passion for textiles and travel, this is a dream book. Renowned artist Anne Kelly helps you discover fresh, creative ways for capturing your journeys in stitch, using exquisitely photographed examples of her own and others’ textiles. Kelly explores the use of maps and their iconography; the influences of different cultures, from Peru to India to Scotland; and ideas for incorporating traditional techniques, fabrics, motifs, and colors. She shows how to document meaningful moments and experiences in stitched postcards and sketchbooks—and even imagines venturing into outer space and portraying its beauty in stitch. And she looks inward too, devoting a chapter to artists whose textiles chart their own emotional journeys.
