VERLET, PIERRE, ET.AL. (PREFACE BY JEAN LURCAT) - The Book of Tapestry  History and Technique

Title: The Book of Tapestry History and Technique
Description: Octopus Publishing Group Ltd., London, 1978. Large quarto hardcover, 229pp., colour and monochrome illustrations. Owner's name on endpaper. Spotted endpapers, pastedowns and preliminaries with random spotting throughout. Text block edges browned and spotted. Illustrated dustwrapper with minor edgewear. Very good. The collection of texts and pictures here consitute a valuable overall guide to a living and fascinating art intimately linked to many of the most provocative moments in human history. In this book are the dreams, the legends and the everyday occupations of our medieval forefathers naively related by Gothic tapestries; the pomp, the power and the glory of kings boasted by the tapestries of Flanders, Italy and the Gobelins; and our 20th century conquests, our joys and our anguish, and our artistic experimentation mirrored in contemporary tapestry.
