Iva Freeman
The 82 lovely colorplates of outstanding pieces in the Esprit quilt collection in San Francisco, in addition to an enjoyable introductory text by famous art critic Robert Hughes, ensure that this book's reader will appreciate Amish quilts as true works of art. All were made in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, between 1950 and 1970. They are prime examples of the power of the Amish quiltmaker. Special focus is given to the quilts' intricate stitching. Any school, public, or academic library will find this a wonderful addition to its crafts and art collections.
