What happens when one making animal meets another? That's the question of my illustrated book on the human uses of spider silk, from gun sights to sticky tunics via acoustic lures, royal underwear and the mystery of the disappearing spider goats, I examine the strange, centuries long entanglement between humans and spiders. The book is now available to buy as a limited edition hardback or a paperback from Strange Attractor Press or from Amazon as paperback only.

"A book that wonderfully unites history, science, art and anthropology"
Rebekah Higgitt, The Guardian

"We don’t just think; we think like humans. We don’t just make; we make like people. There are photographs, sketches and images of artworks throughout, making this fascinating book a very beautiful one too."
Emma Warren, Caught by the River
