Please join us for the book launch of the new and expanded edition of Anni Albers’s “On Weaving,” published by Princeton University Press. The reception, which is free and open to the public and requires no RSVP, begins at 7:30 pm. Copies of “On Weaving” will be for sale during the event and staff from the Albers Foundation will be on hand to answer questions. The related design conversation at 6pm with Brenda Danilowitz, Glenn Adamson, Christina Kim, and Billie Tsien is already at capacity, though you are welcome to join the waitlist via the link in our bio. See you there!
