Pitt Rivers Museum
by Katherine Clough and Philip Grover
This book presents a selection of photographs by embroidery specialist Sheila Paine taken during travels across four continents and twenty-six countries, from the 1980s to the early 2000s.
Over three thousand of Sheila Paine's photographs are now held in the Pitt Rivers Museum, in addition to a varied collection of her textiles. The photographs featured here have been chosen to reveal her eye for colour, pattern and texture; they show the people, processes and the roles of textiles encountered in everyday life. Many are published here for the first time.
Book contains: 106 pages.
Dimensions: 21 x 0.9 x 20.8cm
