Product description

Review

No other book in the vast literature on the subject has so comprehensively celebrated the spectacular and enduring appeal of textiles. --Crafts

A fantastic new collection of more than 1,000 images. --Textiles

As good as it gets ... a wonderful resource and reference book ... this wonderfully illustrated book is a rich visual feast ... clear and thought-provoking. --Selvedge

Can be picked up often as a reference, an inspiration, or for personal refreshment ... an extraordinary accomplishment that pays tribute to this field and its practitioners --Surface Design Journal

A great deal of thought has clearly gone into making sense of the structure of the volume ... the huge number of images is ordered with considerable skill to suggest powerful visual affinities. They include many objects that have rarely been seen before and superb details ... The writer's knowledge of the field and her practical experience of making are evident throughout ... a sumptuous - and well-written - design resource aimed at inspiring textile art and design of the future. --Textile History

With its sumptuous cloth cover and more than 1,000 colour images of historical and contemporary textiles, this fascinating journey through the history and meanings of textiles cannot fail to impress. --Embroidery

Bursts with an abundance of historical and contemporary textiles from around the globe ... a visually rich publication with over 1,000 full-colour images in 'high definition'. --Text: For the Study of Textile Art, Design and History

With its sumptuous cloth cover and more than 1,000 colour images of historical and contemporary textiles, this fascinating journey through the history and meanings of textiles cannot fail to impress. --Embroidery
