Printed Textiles was first published by Viking for the Winterthur Museum in 1970. A history of the cotton and linen textiles printed in Britain and America between 1700 and 1850, discussing their design, methods of manufacture, use, and means of trade. Building on research that has come to light since 1970 and utilizing the technical and scientific expertise of the conservators and scientists at Winterthur, and adding pieces acquired by the museum since 1970, Senior Curator of Textiles Linda Eaton presents a thorough and sweeping study enriched by the diverse approaches to material culture today. The book, illustrated with 600 photographs, offers a full appreciation of the beautiful fabrics that are an intimate part of the Winterthur Museum Collection"-- Provided by publisher.
