Jack Lenor Larsen: A Weaver's Memoir

Author
Jack Lenor Larsen
Publisher
Abrams,Harry Inc.
It has been said that world-renowned textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen could have been a painter, an architect, or a poet, but he chose to be a weaver because, through textiles, he could be painter, architect, and poet all at once. In this illustrated memoir, Larsen reflects on his extraordinary life and career. From his childhood adventures in Seattle, to his awakening as a weaver, to the modest beginnings of his fledgling company, to his rise as the dean of modern textile design, the entertaining, anecdotal account is a window into the postwar design scene in America. He recalls in wry detail his projects with numerous clients and collaborators, including furniture designer Edward Wormley and architects such as Louis Kahn, Edward Larrabee Barnes, I.M. Pei, Minoru Yamasaki, Charles Forberg, and the firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Particularly intriguing are Larsen's far-flung sojourns over several decades, during which he both sought inspiration from indigenous textile traditions and guided thriving workshops with local weavers.
