STUFF FROM BOOKS: Navajo Pictorial Weaving

by Grace Bonney

My friend Alex has an awesome tumblr called Weird Friends with a crazy good collection of vintage and incredible textiles and objects. The archive of mostly original posts goes deep; 1,008 posts in August alone! You can tell she has a library card. She found Navajo Pictorial Weaving at the library and as soon as I saw the posts I ordered a copy for myself.
