Minimizing the marks of time on clothing is a formidable challenge. Costumes reflect the cultural, religious, and ethnic elements of society. Maintaining and recording them is an important pursuit to many professionals including anthropologists, archeologists, museum curators, designers, and archivists. Textile preservation and restoration includes a variety of subtopics such as fiber properties, weave structures, light and lighting, pests, and synthetic conservation materials. History, analysis, and complete subject coverage are provided in this work, and will engage the beginner as well as those who are more knowledgeable. Scrupulous research is complemented by the author's keen interest in this specialized arena. Careful attention to detail makes Darning the Wear of Time an invaluable resource and worthy addition to collections. Survey results, an annotated bibliography, and indexes to bibliography entries make this volume comprehensive, yet readily accessible. Inclusion and indexing of illustrations is a unique feature that increases its value as a hands-on tool. Timely information covering specific aspects of costume conservation, restoration, and documentation make this the ideal vehicle for conveying new developments in these fields. Topics receiving limited attention are made available for those interested in future projects. A thorough and dynamic examination of an intriguing field.
