"How do artists think of the ideas and techniques that go into a work of art? What do their pasts have to do with the subject matter and materials they choose? Combining her love of books and fiber art, Emily Marks shows how 25 artists develop their ideas using thread as a medium for their work. Each section ... depicts the history of covers, bindings, hand embroidery, machine stitching, and altered books and then shows how contemporary book artists build on this past to make new works of art"--Back cover
