American Coverlets 1771 – 1889

First published in 2005 as the catalog for an exhibition presented in Cumberland, Maryland by Melinda & Laszlo Zongor, this book illustrates 61 coverlets, nearly all of which are now in the NMAC permanent collection.

A special section, The Basics, offers brief descriptions of figured and geometric coverlets, pattern types, origins and makers, weave structures, and more. 

This popular little book is especially helpful for folks who are new to coverlets and want a quick, plain language explanation of what it is they're looking at.

Newly reprinted in full color on high quality glossy paper, this third edition includes some new attributions, a new update page, and several editorial improvements for clarity.
