Object Lessons in Historic Textile and Costume Research
Editor Mary M. Brooks
Textiles and costumes often only reveal their full meaning and value through a detailed study of the objects themselves in their context. This interdisciplinary volume brings together papers by leading authorities in textile and costume studies, including historians, curators and conservators discussing a wide range of textiles and costume from tapestries to embroideries, archaeological and ethnographic textiles and exotic costumes at the Danish court as well as European dress in Japan
Well-illustrated, this book will be of interest to all those concerned with understanding, preserving and presenting textiles in the widest sense.
