Product Description

American Quilts: The Democratic Art by Robert Shaw

Sumptuous, informative, and engaging, this is the ultimate book on American quilts as art—and this edition contains several new quilts, created since the book’s original publication. Written by one of the leading scholars in the field, it’s a fascinating chronicle of the growth and evolution of an art form with a rich heritage. Not only does author Robert Shaw provide an insightful look at quilting
aesthetics, he places the craft in its historical, cultural, and socioeconomic context, providing a visually lush journey through American history.

This opulent volume starts with old-world traditions and goes up to the present, examining key moments that had an impact on quilting culture—including Amish
emigration, slavery and the Civil War, the Depression, new sewing technology, and the Bicentennial. More than 350 stunning images capture a rich variety of
work created by people from all walks of life.
