About This Item

New York: Rizzoli International Publications, 1989. Hardbound. VG. Burgundy cloth boards with black and beige DJ, 192 pp, 180 illustrations, 92 in color. From the jacket--Lace: the very word conjures up visions of both purity and eroticism--the virginal white of a lace wedding veil, the seductiveness of black lace. No other fabric, not even silk or velvet, has carried through the centuries the evocative power of lace. In a century-by-century account, the author gives a detailed description of the principal laces of each period, placing them in their historical context. Photographs of laces from every period, almost all published here for the first time--as well as reproductions of paintings depicting lace--appendices of techniques and developments worlwide and a short glossary of terms complete this sumptuous volume. An invaluable work of reference for collectors and all those with an interest in the history history of textiles and fashion, this is also a book to enchant everyone who appreciates the beauty of lace.
