MAX8, the new book by Marian Stubenitsky, is about weavings with, as the name says, a maximum of 8 shafts. The first books in this series had a theme; they were about a subfield of weaving. This issue covers a wide variety of topics. What they have in common is that the number of shafts is limited, although it can also be interesting for people who weave on more than 8 shafts.
Janna van Ledden-Valk started weaving in 2011 and in the years that followed, she has managed to build a reputation for the originality, quality and sublime color choice of her scarves. Through social media she became known worldwide. Increasingly, admirers began to ask her to reveal the patterns of her designs.
A book about weaving, explaining many different weaves that can be made in echo- or parallel threading. A unique project, never published as a book before.
