This is a book about the British sculptor and weaver, Joslyn Tilson, still working strong in 2018 aged 84. As Jos says... "It was designed by Jake, whose books are often about art and family. Ten years ago - standing in my studio in Tuscany - taking photographs, he decided to make a record of my work. This book is the result. "
As with previous books by Jake Tilson such as A Tale of 12 Kitchens and In at The Deep End, Cooking Fish from Venice to Tokyo, he draws upon family photographs and archives to tell the story..
