- Dimensions: 9.5” wide x 11.1” tall x .75” thick
- Paperback, first edition
- This catalog, published in 1991, chronicles the ground-breaking exhibit hosted by the Whitney Museum of American Art, “Abstract Design in American Quilts,” organized by Jon Holstein and Gail van der Hoof. The publication coincides with the exhibit’s twentieth anniversary. In its forward Shelly Zegart, founding member of The Kentucky Quilt Project, writes: “The explosion of interest in quilts that this exhibit triggered continues to gain momentum. Much that has happened in the quilt world since 1971 flowed from or was inspired by that exhibition and most books and articles written about quilts today include a reference to it as well, noting its singular contribution to the awareness of American quilts as art form and social document. Years of references to it have given it an almost mythical status.”
- In celebration of the groundbreaking exhibit’s twentieth anniversary, this extensive catalog was compiled in an effort to allow a new generation of quilt lovers, many of them born out of this pioneering work, to experience the seminal exhibition for themselves. It exists as an important text to quilters around the world and as an invaluable reference for students and appreciators of American material culture.
- This first edition is in very good condition with very slight wear to the edges of its paperback cover.
