Riassunto: American Quilts and Coverlets is the ultimate book on historical Quilts in America. Featuring over 150 outstanding examples and beautifully designed with stunning color illustrations, the book spotlights the Metropolitan Museum of Art's growing collection of our nation's finest and most comprehensive assemblage of traditional American quilts. From wonderful 18th century quilts and extraordinary Amish work to an exceptional 1856 quilt containing hundreds of signatures of important Americans - including seven U.S. presidents, this book gives the reader an even greater understanding and admiration of quilting as Americana. Special features include an illustrated Highlights section and all-new technical appendix by Elena Phipps, the Museum's Senior Conservator in the Department of Textile Conservation. Museum curator and respected authority Amelia Peck contributes new scholarship and an informative and entertaining Introduction.
