    The third volume in Julie Parker's Fabric Reference Series explains the different fabrics made from wool and similar fibers, using plain English instead of confusing technical jargon. A detailed description of each fabric is illustrated with a real cloth sample, right there on the same page, which clarifies in the simplest way what a boiled wool, crpe, gabardine or whipcord actually looks and feels like. A comprehensive introduction covers characteristics of the fiber, history of wool, breeds of sheep and other wool-bearing animals (such as camels and goats), types of wool, the main sources of wool, the wool textile industry, industry trends and how to judge quality. The introduction is followed by two-page descriptions of the main fabric types, each illustrated with a 2-1/2' x 4' cloth sample and simple black-and-white drawings. In the back of the book, space is provided for the reader to collect additional samples and record personal notes, followed by a list of mail-order sources, glossary, bibliography and index.

    This book presents a stunning selection of the fabrics, which clothed the smart women and furnished the stylish interiors of Europe and America during the age of the Ballets Russes and jazz. The Paris 1925 Exhibition brought the richly exotic designs of Paul Poiret and Raoul Dufy to worldwide attention and the fabrics pictured here trace the Art Deco style as it evolves from its initial vibrant blossoming to a more geometric, avant-garde look. The V&A’s collection of Art Deco textiles encompasses luxury, silks, handblock printed pieces and functional man-made synthetics. This overview provides an invaluable resource and introduction to a particularly lively and popular period of textile design. List of Plates, Glossary, Notes on Firms & Designers, Bibliography. Color illustrations. 144p.
