A Visual Study of American Quilts

Quilt-making has a special place in American culture — it’s a unique visual imprint of different areas and time periods throughout the country. I was curious to discover a richly illustrated 1973 survey of quilt making. The best part about this books that it not only looks at quilt making as folk art but also from the standpoint anthropology and cultural studies.
