    The rich heritage of Uppland's textile culture is brought to life through this beautiful book full of history, technical instruction, and beautiful new designs. Some of the weaving techniques are unique to Uppland (in eastern Sweden), but others could be woven elsewhere including outside of Sweden. The author is an enthusiastic weaver with a solid education and experience in the field. In her study of historical archives and in cultural museums she brings to us a treasure trove of older weaving techniques, newly adapted and beautifully photographed. Any 4 shaft loom owner can easily weave them with materials readily available today. This book is an important document for preserving these hand skills and cultural history, including special articles on linen, wool, and Uppland rya written by people with special knowledge in each area. In Swedish.
