More About The Basket Maker by Luther Weston Turner
 
 
 
Overview
Basket weaving is a long-practiced art form around the world, used in practical and decorative manners. Author Luther Weston Turner developed this illustrative manual to explain how to develop a variety of simple, melon shaped, and circular baskets, as well as mats. He begins with the basics to help familiarize new artisans. Turner does not work in a specific style, though he worked with various Native American tribes at the turn of the century and has borrowed extensively from the stylings he learned. This particular work was originally part of a 1905 series, but became so popular that they were collected and developed into this manual. While he published a small selection of articles on basketry in various journals, such as Manual Training Magazine, this is Turner's only known book.
