One neat thing about this book is that it lays open flat so you don't have to juggle with it to keep your place in the book while examining and comparing with your actual quilt or fabric. It has a great, and I mean GREAT, resource list with web site addresses including quilt societies, appraisers and museums, a full glossary of what all those "trade insider" words mean, and a very comprehensive bibliography.
I can't imagine how I got by without this book. It is the visual bible of quilt/fabric dating and identification. It deserves more than 5 starts, it is a gorgeous, useful, well documented and very organized fabric dating reference manual!
The book is divided into sections based on date and then subdivided by color. It's so much fun to look at the pictures! I feel like a little girl again, looking through my mom's neat boxes of old quilt scraps. This book is a must-have for anyone interested in old quilts or historic clothing.
This is a wonderful book, but then, I love vintage fabrics.
