Albers is a Bauhaus-trained weaver and graphic artist whose work is now showing in a retrospective exhibition at the Smithsonian. This volume consists of essays on Albers's life, weaving, and printmaking, each one a condensed and straightforward account of the course of the artist's career. Forty color plates provide a sample of her art. There are also 87 black-and-white figures, but many of these are disappointing because the lack of color makes it difficult to appreciate the qualities of the originals, particularly the woven pieces. This volume provides a competent overview of Albers's art, but it is probably not an essential acquisition for any but specialized collections or very large general libraries. Kathryn W. Finkelstein, formerly with Georgia Inst. of Technology Lib., Atlanta
