Northbrook, IL—Rug Hooking magazine and Ampry Publishing are excited to announce the release of their latest book, Hooked on Words, written by accomplished rug hooker Ellen Banker. Ellen showcases her graphic design experience in this book with her artful arrangement of graphics, text, and colors.

Hooked on Words offers insight into how artists can incorporate words–from accents to phrases–into their hooked rugs. Banker discusses font choices, visual balance, contrast, flow, and so much more. Chapters are accompanied by a wide array of hooked rugs with words on them to provide inspiration to the readers. The book comes with three sample patterns in the back.

Hooked on Words is available now for book club subscribers. It is also available to order on Amazon and will be released on June 1, 2018.
