Anni Albers Notebook 1970-1980
This modest notebook of 106 sketches was discovered after textile artist, Anni Albers' death. Until then, there were very few traces of her working process. This gridded composition book was started by Albers in 1970 and she used it to experiment with patterns as studies for prints, drawings of knots and maze-like patterns for about ten years. The reproduction of her notebook is fantastically detailed with tape marks and etchings as if it was the real thing.
Anni Albers (1899-1994) was a textile artist, designer, printmaker and educator known for her graphic wall hangings, weavings and designs. She studied at the Bauhaus and taught at Black Mountain College.
