About this book

What happens when one making animal meets another? Gossamer Days explores the strange web of spider-human relationships. Artist and writer Eleanor Morgan has spent a decade working with spiders and their silk. Her explorations have led her in search of one of the world's largest web weaving spiders, from the rooftops of Oxford University to a garage in Sussex. Her weaving and drawing with spider silk drew her to research the lost history of Europe's attempt to create a spider silk weaving industry. Here, she details her findings from a life unusually spent.
