The book wasn't in a great condition as it was stated. I am disappointed, however, I should still enjoy reading the book.

HASH(0x9423e774) out of 5 stars Packed with information 12 July 2009
By pattym - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think this book would be in the library of anyone who collects
or designs textiles. Even without the color photos of each type of
textile, the information on technique and history would mark it as
an frequently used reference.

HASH(0x948f4ad4) out of 5 stars World Textiles 27 Oct. 2007
By Charleen A. Vocca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The shipping was super fast, the book was in pristine condition, but best of all, the info in the book was exactly what I needed. It was not a fluffy book about textiles, but a thoroughly researched and well written book. I'll refer to this one constantly. Overall, a fantastic transaction. Thanks much!
