Editorial Reviews


"The images are especially sensitive to the need to view particular details up close, or to glimpse a portion normally hidden from sight. We see and learn to recognize not just pristine examples, but also faded or altered colours. And many page openings contain liberal spreads that allow comparison of a dozen examples at a glance for the honing of connoisseurship.... Dress historians, in particular, will value the section on American dress forming the second half of chapter one." --Costume (UK)

"Wearable Prints gathers in one volume a comprehensive surveyor dyeing and printing technologies during the period's seminal period of development."--Dress

"Overall this book is well produced with clear type, excellent illustrations, thorough research, and good editing. This labor of love has resulted in a fine resource book on the topic that sets the bar for high quality." -- Maine Antique Digest

"Certainly, historians, curators and designers alike will want to use this compendious book and it has a long life ahead as a well-thumbed reference work...." --Textile History (UK)
