World Textiles: A Visual Guide to Traditional Techniques

New York: Bullfinch Press Book / Little, Brown and Company, 1999.
First North American Edition. Hardcover.

The history of the world can be read in textiles: the rise of civilizations and the fall of empires are woven into them, along with the great stories of conquest, religion, and trade. This comprehensive guide devotes eight sections to materials and techniques, translating the complex universe of textiles into over 100 succinct double-page spreads, each with a thorough summary of characteristics and geographical distributions. The sections progress from simple techniques like netting, crocheting, and knitting to more complex and sophisticated techniques like lacemaking.
