Fall 2008 Cover Art
This model is Taryn Clark. I found her through a posting on Craigslist. In addition to being a talented and experienced model, her family owns an alpaca farm. I thought, how great is that? I imagined baby alpacas on the cover. And although the crias were adorable, they did not pose well and kept trying to eat the textiles.
Inkle looms are a much better prop, it turns out. That gorgeous loom in the picture? Part of a limited edition produced by Robyn Spady. She no longer makes them, alas, and you can't have mine. (I did get queries.)
For this shot, I asked Taryn to give me a "Come on, don't you want to weave?" look, which she totally nailed.
