Abstract

Textiles: Critical and Primary Sources is a major multi-volume reference work that draws together 113 seminal texts on textiles. Textile culture stretches geographic, historical, methodological and disciplinary boundaries, and defies chronological ordering. The contents are therefore gathered into four thematic collections dealing with history and curation; production and sustainability; science and technology; and identity, each supported by an introductory editorial essay that serves to critique and supplement each textual collection and theme. Textiles: Critical and Primary Sources is a key scholarly resource for any researchers involved in the study of textiles, as well as associated subjects, including studies in dress, costume and fashion; feminism and gender; art, design and cultural history; and sociology and anthropology.
