No commercially published book, before or since, has captured the amount and quality of information and research on the art of tablet weaving (also known as card weaving). Finally, long-deprived cardweaving enthusiasts can own their very own copy of Peter Collingwood's landmark book thanks to this high-quality 2015 reprint, complete with dozens of detailed photographs, pattern examples, and step-by-step instructions for each of the techniques presented.

WEAVING WITH SMALL APPLIANCES. BOOK II- TABLET WEAVING. The art of tablet weaving is pre-historic, and has been practised generally all over the world throughout history. Many kinds of beautiful braids and narrow webs are still woven by this simple method in remote places where the primitive traditional arts and crafts still survive. The authors interest in this subject was further stimulated by seeing a tapestry in the V&A Museum in 1921 of which the central figure, the Virgin Mary, is depicted weaving an elaborate lace on a tablet loom. After much studing of the technique and the capacity of the little appliance the author presents the outcome of the experiments clearly in this books pages.
