    Whereas textiles in many parts of the world are used simply as clothing, in Africa their uses are extremely diverse, ranging from tent awnings to bed covers and bridal wear. Historically, cloth was frequently used as currency and can still indicate the owner's wealth and standing in the community. In this fascinating book, Christopher Spring places African textiles in context and describes how the weaving methods in different parts of the country affected the type of cloth produced, including the use of dyes, the importance of certain colors, and the way designs may be interpreted. The weaving tradition still flourishes, and the examples illustrated here provide a revealing insight to African culture and traditions.

    One hundred years after its conception, the American Arts and Crafts Style - made famous by designers such as Gustav Stickley and Greene & Greene - remains popular. While most of the attention received focused on its achievements in architecture and furniture, the colorful table linens, curtains, pillows, clothing and other textiles have been largely overlooked - until the publication of this book! Especially valuable are its rare photographs, some showing the textiles in period settings. Illus., 200 photos, 150 in full color. 248p. Tears to dust jacket.
