-A textile art book brimming with wit and humor -Many double-page photos illustrate the immense effort that is dedicated to each of Madame Tricot's installations -Second edition of the successful volume, now for the very first time in English With her unique artistic installations, Madame Tricot - real name Dominique Kaehler Schweizer - displaces the viewer into an illusory world of knitted delicacies. Her smokehouses, refrigerators, counters of sausage and cheese, and platters of vegetables and desserts are full of wit and irony. The knitted human heads and anthropomorphic specimens, on the other hand, confront the viewer with the breaking of taboos and surreal allusions. The installation-like staging represents a balancing act of fine art and virtuosic craftsmanship, and draws on the Eat Art movement of the 1960s. The work of the Swiss artist thus repeatedly awakens associations with the work of Daniel Spoerri, Dieter Roth and Fischli/Weiss. Text in English and German.

The publisher wishes to make clear that this is not a book of knitting patterns, but a photographic collection of some of the weird and wonderful things that people have created using needles and wool. The publisher works closely with Amazon to ensure that any book search provides accurate information, and apologises if anyone has bought WFT Knits thinking its contents to be other than photographic and just for fun. An hilarious photographic collection of the weirdest knits you'll ever see! Forget scarves and bobble hats. Here are the results of some nutty knitting that will really blow your mind... For the last four years, Gabrielle Grillo has been scouring the web for the most bizarre knitted items she can find. In this hysterically funny book, she has collected the very best of her finds. From a knitted Christmas turkey cosy to woolly vomit, from burgers to a sperm fertilizing an egg - they have to be seen to be believed. This is a photographic book of fun - full of weird, wonderful and extremely messed-up knitting and crochet creations from around the globe. As you flick through, there'll be a smile on your face and one question on your lips: 'WTF were they thinking?'

Now broadening his affectionate embrace to include the myriad facets of the French countryside, Sadler makes you laugh, makes you think, and makes you love the place.
