From Booklist:

In an informative and beautifully illustrated book, Schevill sets forth copious research that serves to enhance the visual impact of these Guatemalan textiles located at Berkeley's Hearst Museum. It is both a detailed anthropological study, which delves into aspects of Mayan culture and examines historical and sociological forces brought to bear on Mayan communities of Guatemala, and a catalog of the stunning collections, containing descriptions of techniques, dying processess, and textile production. Schevill also presents a fascinating if brief biography of Gustavus Eisen, the Swedish American scientist whose journeys to Guatemala were supported by Phoebe Hearst. This comprehensive collection of textiles includes many admirable woven and embroidered objects and garments of breathtaking design. Alice Joyce
