Readable, with enough technical insight to satisfy an academic of professional audience and enough explanation to reach a more casual reader. Carefully chosen photographs (and especially the detail shots) help clear up any ambiguities and pique the reader's curiosity. Selvedge This book is a visual feast for textile enthusiasts...
