Louisa Calder Creative Crochet Book 1979
This is a vintage Creative Crochet book by Louisa Calder who was an American lady married to the celebrated sculptor Alexander Calder who is famous for creating abstract mobiles in the 1930s (a revolutionary idea at the time). The book of designs are largely based upon her husbands artworks. The designs are quirky and encourage crochet exploration. There are also some hooked rug and wall hangings in the back. She received the United Nations Woman of the Year Award in 1975. A delightful book for artists and crocheters alike. clearance
