Woven Structures

Martin Puryear is an American artist known for his devotion to traditional craft. Working in wood and bronze, among other media, his reductive technique and meditative approach challenge the physical and poetic boundaries of his materials. This hardcover hand bound book mimics his traditional approach to material through the use of die cuts, block printing, and typographic layouts that imitate a woven tapestry of his
creative process.
