Focuses on 'wicker' baskets almost exclusively May 10 2007
By Barbara L. Pinzka - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Despite the title of "Complete Book of Basketry," this book actually only covers what I would call wicker baskets, those made with a weave of strong wood fibers and solid wood components. Adequate histories of those baskets are given, as well as some nice DIY designs. She also covers, although not in depth, popular Native American baskets but VERY LITTLE is said about baskets other than those found in the US.

There also is a strong focus on what she categorizes as Appalachian baskets.

I was looking, however, primarily for information about the world-famous baskets made by blacks/African-Americans in the Charleston, SC, area, commonly called Sweetgrass/Gullah baskets. Wright allots only one paragraph and no illustrations to this huge and popular subject, and uses the word "negro," perhaps reflective of the book's initial 1977 copywright.
