Coverlets woven by professional weavers between 1825 and 1875 provide an intriguing visual record of the interplay of folk motifs, such as animals, birds, flowers, sunbursts, to name a few. The artistry varies according to each maker's feeling for design, color and scale. These coverlets and the professionals who wove them are the subjects of this book.
