American Coverlets and Their Weavers · Coverlets from the Collection of Foster and Muriel McCarl
By Clarita S. Anderson

Coverlets woven in vibrant colors of red, blue, white, and green are as popular today as they were in the nineteenth century. American Coverlets and Their Weavers is a lavishly illustrated guide to one of the premier collections of coverlets in the nation. As such, it is also an essential reference for collectors, historians, specialists in material culture, and others who are interested in American textiles.

American Coverlets and Their Weavers is an attractive, well-designed publication that is likely to offer updated information and enhance the earlier work’s scholarship. The author, who has other publications on the topic, has constructed a thorough, informative reference work on an important aspect of American textile history.”
