This title offers an insightful collection of critically important readings on the concepts and practices of textile conservation. This fourth volume in "The Readings in Conservation series" aims to promote critical thinking about the concepts and practices of textile conservation and to encourage engagement with new issues. Recognizing conservation as a dynamic social force, the volume draws attention to the cultural significance of textiles and dress and to the importance of textile conservation. The 81 readings illustrate not only the intellectual foundations but also the important changes in conservation practice.
