Long damned with faint praise as a minor craft, quiltmaking has come to be valued in fine art circles. America's Glorious Quilts pays tribute to quiltmakers and their art form by reproducing the best American quilts from all historical periods272 quilts in allmost in one-page or half-page glossy color photographs. Noted quilt historians contribute essays on the myriad forms quilts have assumed, from the brilliant-hued geometrical patchwork of the Amish to the soft curving of traditional Hawaiian applique to the imaginative approaches of contemporary quilt artists like Nancy Crow, and Michael James. Recommended for general purchase. Janice Zlendich, California State Univ. Lib., Fullerton
