Titled “Skein” this print dates to 1952 and was designed by Mariska Karasz, a woman “among the pioneers of modern fiber arts in the 20th century.” I love its self referential / meta nature and also how wacky and off-kilter the whole composition is. I’m also surprised she did it for F. Schumacher as the company today seems rather staid and traditional (not that that’s a bad thing!).
