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

    Good enough to buy a second time!

    This book has proven to be a wonderful source of design inspiration and 'how to' instruction for my custom drapery business! So inspiring that it disappeared in the hands of one of my customers! 'Wish I knew who, but in the mean time I'll settle for another copy!
