 Alighiero Boetti was an Italian conceptual artist and member of the Arte Povera movement. Boetti used a wide variety of materials for his work—including ball point pens and postal stamps—to make a series of maps and graphical charts of the world.

He also often designed textiles to be embroidered in artisan workshops, and from 1987 until his death, Boetti was completely absorbed in the creation of his largest and most complex tapestry, Tutto, which was created to represent the cultural diversity of the world. This book covers the textile period in his life and specifically his work that featured in  the Ben Brown Fine arts exhibition, London, 2006. On display was a wide range of embroideries which form a fascinating and important segment in Boetti's oeuvre. The work in this book show embroideries which were first fabricated in Afghanistan and then after the Russian invasion in 1979, the production was moved to Pakistan. Boetti designed his pieces in Italy with the help of his assistants and then travelled to Afghanistan and later to Pakistan at least twice a year with his drafts.
