The July/August 2008 issue of Selvedge Magazine is out now. I have a digital subscription through Exact Editions — highly recommended since it’s far more affordable than the paper version and gives you access to all the back issues.
The issue’s theme is “Indian Summer” and contains a few standout articles on block printing in Jaipur, and the history of the textile trade between India and the West. Other good stuff:
- A feature on Takashi Iwasaki‘s embroidery (oh how I love this guy)
- A trend report on silhouette and papercut motifs
- An obit for Swedish textile designer Anna Sorensson
- True Up hero Skinny LaMinx gets not-one-but-two mentions!
