This new guide to vintage textiles promises a lot--and it delivers. Kurella (Guide to Lace and Linen) has compiled a very basic, practical, and informative resource for appreciating, understanding, collecting, and recycling old textiles. Following a brief introduction, the book is divided into five sections, the largest of which focus on materials--fabrics (manipulations and embellishments), fibers, threads, and yarns--and things--vintage fashions, home furnishings, and fabrics of society. Other sections provide information on milestones of textile history, a guide to shows and sales, and a resource directory arranged by state. The text is easy to read and sprinkled with definitions, explanations, illustrations, diagrams, and charts. The one disappointment is that there are far too few color illustrations. Otherwise, this book is a welcome and affordable purchase for both public and academic libraries.
