TEXTILES by Roz & Boche Kaplan Abisch


Email this review


A run-of-the-mill survey of natural and, more briefly, manmade fibers -- their origin and first use, early history, role in the industrial revolution, and methods of weaving, dyeing and printing. There are black and white photos of mills and machines and examples of old fabrics and notably undistinguished modern textile designs; neither the selections chosen, their reproduction here nor the authors' captions rate attention.
