"This was a book that was needed in the national panorama. It is true that there are partial studies of recognised merir, but there wasn't a general and time-comprising view on table textiles, let alone on the way to use them, a lacuna that this book, based on a remarkable documental set, now fulfils."
"The work is divided into seven chapters: fabrics and dyes; embroidery and lace; trousseaux; the power of white; dressing the table; table linen and civility and, last but not least, a useful glossary."
