about

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&A’s extensive archive, this impressive book features more than 500 images of artists’ textiles, unparalleled in quality and scope.

Lesley Jackson is a writer, curator, and design historian specializing in 20th-century design.
