Editorial Reviews

Review

Interesting text supported by good photographs - this book makes you think again. www.karenplatt.co.uk 'Quinn's snappy journalist tone is accessible, avoiding the droning quality that makes much academic writing of otherwise important content so very dull to read.' Crafts Magazine Although this book ... is produced like a scientific publication, with detailed notes, a bibliography and an index in the appendix, it makes a smooth reading for lay people too, and can be recommended to anyone interested in the subject. Textile Forum Magazine Textile Futures will expand your view of what a textile is and what functions it can have. If you are generally fascinated with textiles, then you will likely read the book cover-to-cover upon receiving it ... [it] would be a useful addition to the library of anyone whose field has traditionally or will in the future be shaped by textiles. Textile Futures is a nice collection of not only new textile materials, but also textile innovations the future may hold. Worn Through Although the subject is broad and far-reaching, Quinn expertly navigates the book's themes. It is refreshing that designers and researchers are given the opportunity to voice their own views. This subject might easily have fallen flat in the wrong hands but Quinn's essays can be read quite happily by expert or novice alike. Embroidery
