Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Martha Sielman has done it again. She has taken a group of beautifully executed art quilts with a strict theme—people and portraits —and created a richly diverse collection that expands the reader's understanding not only of the complexity of portraiture, but also the intricacies of working with fabric as a medium. Sielman's keen eye for detail and expert curation of the subject are evident from the insightful introduction to the last description. The book is divided into seven sections with different themes. Each theme contains profiles of three well-known artists who are particularly adept at expressing the theme, and a gallery of quilts that exposes the reader to a wide variety of artistic styles. As a reference for some of the most beautiful and moving portraiture that has been accomplished in the contemporary fiber world, this book is a must. Be prepared to become lost in the faces, entranced with the expressions, and pulled in by the emotions of these outstanding examples of fine artistry rendered in cloth." —Vivika Hansen DeNegre, Editor, Quilting Arts magazine
