ABSTRACT DESIGN IN AMERICAN QUILT: A Biography of an Exhibition
By Jonathan Holstein, foreword by Shelly Zegart

ABSTRACT DESIGN IN AMERICAN QUILT: A Biography of an Exhibition Abstract Design in American Quilts, an exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in 1971 curated by Jonathan Holstein and Gail van der Hoof, is generally credited as the spark that ignited the modern international quilt revival. Holstein gives its background, set against the art world of New York in 1971, and discusses what has happened with quilts internationally since then. The book includes full-page color photos of every quilt in that historic exhibition, plus other rare photographs important to modern quilt history that are nowhere else available.
