About the Author

Micala Sidore (Northampton, Massachusetts) studied at the Manufacture Nationale des Gobelins in Paris and has woven and exhibited tapestries for 40 years. She lectures and teaches throughout the world.


Micala Sidore, a tapestry weaver in her own right, began work on this book after organising an eponymous travelling exhibition of tapestries by 60 weavers from Canada, Mexico and the United States... This is a surprising book, not only because of the many weaving artists it portrays but also for the unusual way in which they are presented. The works, both old and new, are arranged into nine chapters which allow readers to appreciate what tapestry weavers seek to achieve in their art... Aside from the way in which artworks are organised in this book, I was equally impressed by the number of artists featured (238), many of them, of course, from North and South America, but also many from Europe and other parts of the world... It goes without saying that I strongly recommend buying this very beautiful book which can help readers see behind the scenes of tapestry making as an art form. -- Textile Arts Forum, 30 December 2020
"Gloriously produced... the photography and reproduction is of the highest standard... Contemplation, immersion, and sheer enjoyment prevail... Represents a genuine celebration of this art form... Sidore has made a real contribution to all who are creative, who weave and who enjoy viewing the visual arts." -- Michael Crompton, Tapestry Weaver
