Kaffe Fassett has led an extraordinary life. He spent much of his youth in Big Sur, where his parents bought a cabin from Orson Welles and transformed it into the world-famous Nepenthe restaurant, a gathering place for artists and bohemians. He attended boarding school run by the disciples of Krishnamurti, studied painting in Boston, and became a famous knitwear designer for the likes of Missoni and Vogue magazine. Renowned for his explosive use of color, Fassett has embraced needlepoint, mosaics, rugmaking, tapestries, yarn and fabric design, costume and set design, and quilting, becoming one of the most beloved and influential designers today in the process. This joy-filled, gorgeous book is perfect for anyone who likes to make—or appreciate—beautiful things.
