Review:

'My attention was first caught by the 64 high-quality colour photographs an the lay-out. Each sampler is displayed on its own specially chosen and very becoming colour and then shown to the right of of its one-page text ... a valuable introduction to a fascinating subject.' Museum News

'This lavishly illustrated book ... brings to life many of the social ramifications of the sampler's manufacture and decoration.' Antique Dealer and Collectors' Guide
