Winner, Best Designed Specialist Illustrated Book, APA Book Design Awards 2012

Published in association with the exhibition of the same name, Love Lace presents a multidisciplinary collection of work by 134 finalists in the Powerhouse Museum International Lace Award. Playful and inventive, these works represent a provocative challenge to traditional concepts of lace.

Artists from 20 different countries push lace techniques in surprising new directions – knitting human hair into sculptures of human organs, crocheting steel wire into a ghostly motor engine, carving lace patterns from the body of a rusty old truck. The book includes an essay by Powerhouse Museum curator Lindie Ward and an in-depth look at the creative process of 10 artists. It features a wraparound cover which folds out to a poster showcasing all the works and highlighting the winning entries.
