Description:

New Publication String, Felt, Thread: The Hierarchy of Art and Craft in American Art by Elissa Auther. String, Felt, Thread presents an unconventional history of the American art world, chronicling the advance of fiber from the "low" world of craft to the "high" world of art in the 1960s and 70s and the emergence today of a craft counterculture.  Book reviewed by Janet Koplos in American Craft, June/July 2010, p. 12.
