    Amazing and Beautiful Book

    As a huge fan of Vera¿s designs and linens, I really enjoyed ¿Vera Textiles.¿ Before reading the book, I knew very little about Vera Neumann. I found the section on Vera¿s life very informative and easy to read. What really excited me was being able to find the same or similar scarves to ones I own in the book. I saw many designs that I don¿t own but would love to buy. There are more than 500 photos to look at and admire! I recommend this book to people who are familiar with her designs and to those who are not. Vera was a great artist and her designs are inspiring. I also loved how the writers included quotes from Vera at the beginning of each chapter and the price guide is very helpful. A very well done book! Loved it!

    A Great Resource

    I found Vera Textiles to be very informative and well organized. The section on the life of Vera Neumann was quite interesting. The information on suggested prices and where to buy her products was very helpful. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in vintage clothing or textile designs.
