Yarn Bombing

The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti: Tenth Anniversary Edition
Mandy Moore & Leanne Prain

Description

When Yarn Bombing was first published in 2009, the idea that knitted and crocheted objects could be used as a political act of resistance was brand new. Ten years and thousands of public acts of yarnarchy later, the art of knit and crochet graffiti has entered the public zeitgeist, from the "pussyhat" making the cover of Time to OLEK's crocheted bull on Wall Street symbolizing The Great Recession: a cultural phenomenon that shows no sign of slowing down.

This tenth anniversary edition is a wildly coloUrful guide to covert textile street art around the world; it also includes over 20 amazing patterns, provides tips on how to be as stealthy as a ninja, demonstrates how to orchestrate a large-scale textile project and offers revealing information necessary to design your own yarn graffiti tags.

The book includes a new foreword by the authors and a new chapter that includes many infamous examples of yarn bombing over the past ten years. Subversive and beguiling, it demonstrates that the phenomenon of knit and crochet graffiti is more relevant than ever, especially in these troubled times.
