The Book of Fine Linen free pdf A visual tribute to the elegant world of heirloom household fabrics, from the white linen cloth of ancient Egypt to the rainbow-hued coverlets of today. This lively text introduces heirloom household fabrics, their use, manufacture, embellishments, and care, as well as the infinite variety of fibers and materials used. The author explains how they serve as both unusually revealing testaments of the history of daily life and quintessential examples of the weaver s craft, often so magnificently decorated that they rival works of art.

A comprehensive glossary of technical terms, bibliography, and index complete the book."
