Stringcraft In 3D

The book is Stringcraft In 3D, and on my road to making my string lamp, I bought it.

It's from 1976, and my first thought is to say it's not very good, but then I am at a loss to name another 3D string art book. The problem is that is translates patterns from a previous book into 3D - so there isn't really a guide to those patterns. Also it is way too short: 31 pages and the book is only 6.5" Square.

If you can get for around $5- including delivery, go for it.

If you know another book I should check out, let me know.


  1. what is the previous book? is that one available? i'm obsessed w/ this idea!

  2. As you can see in the pic, the book is Leisure Crafts 54 in a series of 55 (Yeah, I want 'em all). The previous book they reference is book 40 Pin and Thread.

  3. There are a lot of 3D string books - I've been collecting them for many years - what are you looking for, in particular, designs you can use for lamps or ...?

  4. Nothing in particular right now. Any chance you might upload some scans to flickr?
