TSB Books Featured in Publishers Weekly Cover Story

PublishersWeekly7-18-trafalgarbooks

“Once, domestic arts were learned at grandmother’s knee or in home economics class,” writes Bethanne Patrick in the July 30 issue of Publishers Weekly. “Today, crafters are looking across the globe for ideas and interaction.”

Since 1992, Trafalgar Square Books has published a few select, highly illustrated instructional titles for fans of knitting, crochet, spinning and weaving, sewing, embroidery, and mosaic each year. We are proud to publish the work of top names in the design and craft industries, including the wildly popular duo Arne & Carlos; spinning and weaving expert, the late Anne Field; knitting and cabling innovator Elsebeth Lavold; bestselling crochet veteran Tove Fevang; internationally beloved colorwork master Martin Storey; and Scandinavian pattern specialists like Mette Handberg, Annemor Sundbø, and Jorid Linvik, to name just a few. We have had our eye on the very subject of Patrick’s cover feature: as our world gets smaller and we are more connected, we can begin to be influenced by creative forces in what once were “far-flung” places. And what we  find across oceans and on different continents can be of surpassing beauty, as well as laden with fascinating history.

Patrick specifically named several of TSB’s forthcoming titles in her article—books we’ll release in the Winter of 2018 and Spring of 2019. But until then, if knitting and crochet from Scandinavia and other distant places piques your interest, visit our online bookstore (CLICK HERE).

Ever heard of the Faroe Islands? Neither had we until we published this book:

FAROE ISLAND KNITS

Faroe Island Knits

 

Is your favorite television series Game of Thrones, or Rome, or Tudors, or Vikings? Trust us when we say your knitting can reflect your viewing preferences:

MEDIEVAL-INSPIRED KNITS or how about VIKING KNITS & ANCIENT ORNAMENTS

Perhaps your ancestors came from another country with strong handicraft traditions? Try:

TRADITIONAL SWEDISH KNITTING PATTERNS or MITTENS FROM AROUND NORWAY or THE ART OF LITHUANIAN KNITTING

We are always looking for new sources of inspiration, so if you know of a knitting, crochet, weaving, or spinning book that should be translated to English so more crafters could benefit from its ideas and tips, please be in touch. We love to hear from others with an enthusiasm for the wide array of arts and artists that make our world a beautiful and endlessly interesting place.
