    5,000 Years of Textiles is an authoritative reference and a visual delight, with examples from the Far East to the Americas, from Africa to Scandinavia, and from Egyptian artifacts dating from 3000 BC to the most up-to-date modern craftwork and furnishings.  The new coffee table format is larger (8 1/2 x 10 3/4), and more beautiful than before. The book includes an expert guide to nine fundamental textile techniques, from rug weaving and tapestry to felt and bark cloth. Each is clearly explained, using line drawings and close-up color details from actual textiles, to show how people from many different traditions have made and decorated cloth through the centuries. The breathtaking wealth of illustrations drawn from major collections all over the world includes costumes, period interiors, archival photographs, and a vast range of fabrics, from the simplest handwoven cloths to sumptuous brocades and exquisite embroidery.

    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.
