the handweavers guild of america offers a free online copy of their journal shuttle spindle & dyepot. it's a great read and i was particularly struck by victoria rivers' work. i love all the abstract layering and play on light and dark, in particular the series including "lucid awakening" that seeks to represent a hallucinatory experience under anaesthesia. i can imagine they would be just spellbinding in the flesh.

as a fully paid up member of the "ooh shiny!" school of aesthetics i find it hard to believe i don't already own at least one copy of her book shining cloth. in an attempt to rectify the oversight i've added it to my amazon wishlist ;)
