Editorial Reviews

A catalogue of the stunning medieval tapestry collection in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which includes spectacular examples woven in the southern Netherlands and Germany during the 14th through 16th centuries, rare items from the 15th century, and, of course, the famous unicorn tapestries. The author discusses each tapestry or set of tapestries, while the 356 illustrations, many full page and/or color images, vividly display the detail and brilliance of the works. Introductory essays present an up-to-date history and historiography of tapestry as well as a history of the Museum's collection, and an explanation of the techniques used in weaving tapestries. Meticulously produced and bound and beautifully slipcased. 9.75x12" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
