This Thing of Paper
The inspiration that spurred Karie Westermann into writing This Thing of Paper was her lifelong fascination with books and how all her favourite volumes all fit just so in her hands (much like her favourite pair of knitting needles!). This Thing of Paper is a stunning collection of eleven knitting patterns, accompanied by thought-provoking and personal essays, atmospheric photographs, and practical knitting advice.
What does it mean to be a maker? What do handmade things mean to us? Who do we become as we read and knit? All these questions and many more are discussed in a knitting book quite unlike others. Drawing fascinating parallels between two enduring forms of self-expression, this book will strike a chord with book lovers, readers, and knitters everywhere.
This Thing of Paper is officially the first knitting book to be added to the Gutenberg Museum's archive of book history.
