Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Given the subtitle, the reader would expect to find a well-organized "how to" manual. Instead, Forbes, a London interior designer, has produced a lavishly illustrated book with imaginative variations of standard draperies. Experienced sewers will be inspired, but the instructions are given in such a disorganized fashion that amateurs will probably be a bit befuddled. Compared with Lady Caroline Wrey's The Complete Book of Curtains and Drapes (LJ 2/15/92) and Carol Parks's Complete Book of Window Treatments & Curtains (Sterling, 1993)-which provide, respectively, elegant window treatments and clear practical directions-this book falls short of its goal.-Gayle A. Williamson, formerly with Fashion Inst. of Design & Merchandising, Los Angeles
