This book, now available for the first time in paperback, traces the history of tapestry from early examples to modern pieces. The different forms of tapestry associated with tribal and nomadic life are discussed, as well as those of the developed world, and tapestry is considered both as an art form and as an everyday, practical craft. The copious illustrations reveal the sumptuous texture and beauty of tapestries in detail, and show them in the settings in which they are used. This is an inspiring sourcebook of ideas that also offers practical advice on where to see the most interesting collections, how to buy antique or modern tapestry and how to care for it.
