Dust jacket notes: "The little-known eighteenth-century patterned fabrics called indigo blue resist prints are to be found only in America, where examples are owned by about thirty museums; they are prized for their rarity as well as for their designs, which are unlike other decorative fabrics of the period. It is not known where or by whom the indigo blues were made, or exactly what process produced them, and so they are the mystery fabrics of historic textiles. Another mystery is the fact that they are completely unknown in European collections, a circumstance to be weighed in examining a long-held opinion that the blue resists were made in England....Some of the 106 fabrics pictured were discovered in New England collections and photographed for the first time; eight full-color plates clearly show the long-lasting beauty of indigo blue. Included also are: a list of the museums that own the fabrics, a chart of dates, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography...." Hardcover, 7.5 x 10 inches, 150 illustrations, 8 full-color plates, guide to collections, glossary, index.
