Printed Textiles: British and American Cottons and Linens 1700–1850. Linda Eaton

The Monacelli Press for the Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum, Inc., 2014.

There are books with beautiful photographs, those that present complex information, and ones that possess lively and engaging writing. Linda Eaton’s Printed Textiles offers all three. Part history and part catalogue, the text is a gracefully expanded update of Florence Montgomery’s groundbreaking 1970 publication. The six chapters comprising the first half of the book reflect the latest research into fiber identification, coloring and printing processes, and international trade, and clearly discuss shifts in the historic vocabulary that have often led to debate.

600 illustrations, most in full color, make the book just as delightful for casual perusing as it is for serious research. (MSRP $85.00; Amazon $53.48)
