"Co-authored by Swedish and American design critics, this handsomely illustrated volume celebrates the thirty-year career of the Swedish-born textile artist, Helena Hernmarck. It also serves as the catalogue to the retrospective exhibition of her work, first shown at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and [then at] Prins Eugen's Waldermarsudde Museum in Stockholm. The book traces her Swedish roots and encompasses her years in Canada, England and the United States, where Hernmarck took up residence in 1975. It covers the evolution of Hernmarck's large-scale woven tapestries out of the Swedish textile tradition and into the largescale, photorealist style for which she is known."
