"Exquisite . . . superb series."--Crafts

"Contains artifacts of such blazing beauty, such powerful perfection that they need no elaboration."--Country Life

This superbly illustrated book draws on highlights from the V&A''s fabulous collection of woven, printed, and embroidered textiles and their designs. Based on the V&A''s British Textiles series, with a new introduction, this comprehensive compendium brings together a visual history of British fabrics with over 1,000 lush color images. The fabrics showcase the amazing creative abilities of professional and amateur designers over three centuries. International experts introduce each period and the textiles produced in it, with a short text followed by a plate section for each theme. The book includes technical and artistic innovations and provides an invaluable reading list, glossary of terms, and biographies of the chief figures of the era.
Linda Parry was a curator in the textile department of the V&A for over 30 years. She is the author of numerous books including William Morris Textiles, Textiles of the Arts and Crafts Movement, and the coeditor of International Arts and Crafts.
