: Edinburgh Weavers, in business from 1931 to 1963, was one of the most important textile companies of the 20th century. Alastair Morton, the visionary art director of the company, commissioned a remarkable series of textiles from leading British artists, including Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, and Elisabeth Frink, as well as artist-designers, such as Marion Dorn, Ashley Havinden, and Lucienne Day. Morton was also a gifted artist, textile designer, and weaver in his own right. This major work traces his wide-ranging career and records the history of Edinburgh Weavers and the glorious textiles it produced. Drawing on the V&As extensive archive, this impressive book features more than 500 images of artists textiles, unparalleled in quality and scope.
