Towards the end of the Introduction, the author, Martha Sielman writes "The book's underlying concept of displaying up to a dozen quilts by each of the artists does limit the number of quilters included in the book, but it also allows the artists' work to be seen in much greater depth."

A beautiful book with pages on 40 different art quilters. Short on verbiage, long on pictures of seminal quilts, just the way I like it. There is a good cross-section of quilters from Michael James and Yvonne Porcella to Joan Schulze Hollis Chatelain. Highly recommend.

An inspiring collection of modern art quilts made by masters. Rich and detailed, these quilts rival any painting. From photo realistic trees, portraits and modernist grids this thick beautiful collection shows a dazzling array of fabric masterpieces.
