I have been recommending this book to people left right and center so I do not hesitate to say if you can find a copy then buy it! It's a fascinating insight to Chicago's work for those interested in the art historical perspective of 'The Dinner Party' and compliments the other books that Chicago has written. I have the 'Creation to Preservation' book and hesitated over buying this because i feared overlap. I should not have worried. This book concentrates on the needlework, how the runners were made, and the workshop settings in which they were made and the needlework artists who created them. It also discusses in depth the technical details of the work, (such as the logistics of ironing that enormous table cloth!) and how the runners enhance the symbolism behind the plates. I would also recommend this book to fellow embroiderers who maybe don't know the 'The Dinner Party' art work yet but are interested in art textiles generally. It shows just what can be achieved with a needle, thread and imagination, and proves once and for all that Embroidery IS ART.
