A compilation of papers given at two ICOM-CC Textile Working Group meetings, this is a volume edited by two very well- known textile conservators. Each chapter is written by experts in various areas of textile conservation. Certain chapters focus on conservation strategies for one group or groups of objects. There is a section devoted to ethical considerations in textile conservation. Analyses of various methods of training and a general discussion of instructional methodology are intriguing and thought-provoking. This is a unique text which truly coves the gamut of concerns felt by textile conservators.
