Light and Transparency

First day of the Guild Spinning Certificate yesterday. I took a few minutes to browse in the library at lunchtime and came across this:
Doramay Keasbey, "Sheer Delight--Handwoven Transparencies"; Stellar Publishing House, Pettaluma, California, 1990.

It's a sort of anthology of Handwoven Transparencies, with some technical information and a Workshop section as well. I've hardly even skimmed the book, but the basic technique seems to be a combination of a stable, sheer plain weave, with decorative inlays. I'm keen to have a closer look.
