153 HANSON, MARIN F. & CREWS, PATRICIA COX. American Quilts In The Modern Age, 1870 - 1940: The International Quilt Study Center Collections.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2009. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich has remarked, "Much of the social history of early America has been lost to us precisely because women were expected to use needles rather than pens." This book, part of the multivolume series of the International Quilt Study Center collections, recovers a swath of that lost history and shows us some of America's treasured material culture as it was pieced and stitched into place. American Quilts in the Modern Age, 1870-1940 examines the period's quilts from both an artistic and a historical perspective. From pieced block to Crazy style to Colonial Revival examples, as well as one-of-a-kind creations, the full array of style and design appears in this book covering seven decades of quiltmaking. The contributing authors provide critical information regarding the modern and anti-modern tensions that persisted throughout this era of America's coming of age, from the Civil War to World War II. They also address the textile technology and cultural context of the times in which the quilts were created, with an eye to the role that industrialization and modernization played in the evolution of techniques, materials, and designs. With full-color photographs of over 587 quilts, American Quilts in the Modern Age, 1870-1940 offers a new visual and tactile understanding of American culture and society, bridging the transition from traditional folk culture to the age of mass production and consumption. Marin F. Hanson is curator of exhibitions at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Her scholarly articles have appeared in Textile: The Journal of Cloth and Culture and Uncoverings: Research Papers of the American Quilt Study Group. Patricia Cox Crews is the director of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum and a professor in the Department of Textiles, Clothing, and Design at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She has edited many books, including A Flowering of Quilts (Nebraska 2001), and is coeditor of Nebraska Quilts and Quiltmakers (available in a Bison Books edition). "This is certain to become a valued addition to the quilter's or textile historian's reference library."ŃSandy Amazeen, monstersandcritics.
