24 unnumbered pages : all illustrations. "As a weaver, recreational student of topology and collector of wire entanglement puzzles, I've been studying chainmaille and the many variations of meshes that can be made with interlocking rings. The book 'Maille' is a collection of images from this research which have been heavily processed and rendered using a variation on halftoning: a mesh of differently sized white rings. The volume is hinged together with metal rings like those used to make the weaves in the photographs."--artist's statement.
