UK Kirkus Review »
'The shadowy figures who toiled over the pieces we admire today in churches and museums' are vigorously investigated by the author, Keeper of Costumes and Textiles at the Museum of London. In the Middle Ages embroiderers - both men and women, the family workshops - supplied the church and grand patrons with altar cloths and vestments, clothes and wall-hangings. Kay Staniland analyses their skills and techniques in a special section, in fascinating detail. (Kirkus UK)
