About the book:

Noted weaver Lenore Tawny--now well into her 90s and still exhibiting her imaginative work--began creating postcard collages in the 1960s, sending them to friends and colleagues through the U.S. mail. A form of communication without specific messages, the cryptic notations were often enhanced by Tawney's handwriting. As Tawney explains the cards, "They were signs thrown to the wind." The selected postcard collages reveal the creative, mystical, and humorous side of the artist, giving the viewer an intimate glimpse into the personality of this most innovative woman.

Tawney is the recipient of the Visionary Award from the American Craft Museum, New York, 2000. Her works are found in the collections of the American Craft Museum; the Brooklyn Museum of Art; the Renwick Gallery; and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Montréal, Quebec.

96 pages, 83 color images and 6 black-and-white images; size: 8 x 8". Hardcover book with quarter binding. Essay by Holland Cotter, Art Critic, New York Times.
