Review by

If you've ever been curious about the development of scarves over the 20th century this is one for you. I also found it inspirational with ideas and pattern design. I may use a few as launchpads for myself. Slightly unwieldy coffee table book, this is covered in cloth with one of the scarf patterns from the book.
