Publisher Comments:

World-renowned textile designer and weaver Jack Lenor Larsen reflects on his extraordinary life and career in this beautifully illustrated memoir. From the postwar design scene to anecdotes about his collaborators I.M. Pei, Louis Kahn, and Edward Larrabee Barnes, this is a fascinating account by a man whose name is now synonymous with exquisite woven fabrics. Larsen is also an accomplished gardener and garden designer, a tireless traveler, a patron of younger artists, and an avid collector of crafts from around the world.

Jack Lenor Larsen is an artist with an artist’s respect for materials, process, training and education, and human ingenuity. He forged a path of uncertainty to discover pots of gold. I love reading this man’s account of his move from the tidelands of Puget Sound to the shores of Long Island, zigzagging his way around the world, touching fellow artists and craftspeople, all the while making the world a more beautiful place. A Weaver’s Memoir is a beautiful book, its author genuine and honest. It pleases me to read and reread his story.
