In this colorful and extensive survey, Colchester offers a wealth of visual images and an informative narrative on the evolution of high fashion, fine art, and craft textiles in the late 20th century. She explores the relationship between art textiles and fine art and the use of technology in textile design. Using examples from renowned international artists to illustrate her points, she explains the technological advances of the new "intelligent" fabrics and contemplates the "increasing convergence between craft and design." Also valuable is the section that includes biographical sketches of artists, publications, and a glossary. The lavish photographs are a visual treat for the art/craft/design enthusiast seeking inspiration in the fiber arts and for interior design students. Recommended for academic libraries supporting art/craft collections and public libraries where design/fiber art interest is high.
