Nine Years of Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes

Reading Material

A few quick updates: If you've been eying The Sultan's Garden: The Blossoming of Ottoman Art but aren't ready to invest in the pricier hardcover, The Textile Museum shop has just made available a more affordable softcover.


Also new to the shop is that often hard-to-find book about the highly coveted but scarce silk embroideries from Dagestan, Kaitag: Art for Life.  And a ne plus ultra volume about antique Persian textiles, Visions of Nature, is in-stock, too.


Women's Work: Embroidery in Colonial Boston, an MFA publication, draws attention to a lesser known fact about early American needle-arts -- they had a serious impact on the economy.
