Description

Weaving Language examines the poetics of weaving traditions through historical research as well as contemporary practices. Attempting to dismantle and rebuild commonplace understandings of the history of writing, Weaving Language focuses on fiber-based forms as a longstanding but often overlooked medium for record keeping, storytelling, and poetry.

The second book in a three book series, WLII: Language is Image, Paper, Code, & Cloth, is both a mapping of instances that exemplify textile poetics from the beginning of time to the present day, as well as a creative experiment in utilizing textile as code. Capone invites the reader to experience textile as something to be read, along with it’s tactile and visual functions.

Originally published in an edition of 5 in 2015, Weaving Language is in the collections at the MoMA Library in New York, The John Hay Library of Brown University, and The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
