292 RAFFEL, MARTA COTTERELL. The Laces Of Ipswich: The Art And Economics Of An Early American Industry, 1750 - 1840.
University Press of New England, Hanover: 2003. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Richly illustrated study of the central role of lace making in defining a colonial American community. In its lace making heyday in the late eighteenth century, Ipswich, Massachusetts boasted 600 lace makers in a town of only 601 households. George Washington himself, a lace afficionado, paid a visit to Ipswich in 1789 to support its extraordinary domestic textile industry. While most research on lace making concentrates on its cottage origins in the seventeenth century, Marta Cotterell Raffel places the Ipswich industry squarely within the wider context of eighteenth-century manufacture, economics, and culture. Identifying what differentiates Ipswich lace from other American or European lace, she explores how lace makers learned their skills, and how they combined a traditional lace making education with attention to market-driven changes in style. Showing how the shawls, bonnets, and capes created by the lace makers often designated the social position or political affiliation of the wearer, she offers a unique and fascinating guide to our material past. With extensive research based on hundreds of previously unseen artifacts and documents, Raffel shows how this preindustrial labor and craft—absolutely central to the economic health of Ipswich—created and sustained forms of early American culture and shaped an entire community for several generations. Useful appendixes include a glossary of terms; a list of contemporary sources for supplies, lace organizations, and textile museums with lace collections; and two sample patterns with pricking and instructions. Marta Cotterell Raffel is a lace maker who learned the craft over the course of ten years from some of the most skilled people in the field. She has published essays about Ipswich lace in Antiques and Civilization Magazine, and lectured on the topic at the Heard House in Ipswich, Massachusetts, the Peabody Essex Museum, and the Dublin Seminar, among others. Her research for this book was partially supported by the Great Lakes Lace Guild and the Chesapeake Region Lace Guild.

293 RAGAN, VICKI (PHOTOGRAPHS); BARBASH, SHEPARD (TEXT). Changing Dreams: A Generation Of Oaxaca's Woodcarvers.
Museum of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe: 2007. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Changing Dreams: A Generation of Oaxaca's Woodcarvers takes a generation-long look at the fast-changing world of the woodcarvers in Oaxaca, an increasingly popular tourist center where the carvers have become the main attraction. Faced with a range of negative trends, a number of Oaxacan artisans put aside their craft to become mojados, or illegal workers, drawn by the economic opportunities north of the border. Wherever they are, the carvers work for Americans—making whimsical figures for visitors who come to their homes and, when that fails, sneaking off to the States to do all the less glamorous things America feels ambivalent about letting them do. With eloquence and insight, Changing Dreams puts a human face on bilateralism. Barbash effectively presents the carvers' personal stories in narratives drawn from interviews accompanied by Ragan's arresting black-and-white photographs of their lives today—from the dusty villages of Oaxaca to the orchards of Oregon and the kitchens of Chicago.
