"Tapestry" is an 1878 work by Alfred de Champeaux on the subject of tapestry, a form of textile art traditionally woven by hand on a loom. It explores the history and origins of tapestry making, looking at notable producers and developments throughout history. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in the history and evolution of tapestry work, and it would make for a marvellous addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Introductory Remarks on the Art of Tapestry", "High-Warp Looms", "Looms Employed in the Manufacture of Carpets de la Savonnerie", "Low-Warm Looms", "History of Tapestry", "Sarrazinois Carpets", "Earliest Manufacture of Storied Tapestry", "First Flemish Manufactories", "Manufactories in Arras", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on folk music.
