Graphically, Knoll Textiles bridges the divide between scholarship and enjoyment.”—Steven Heller, New York Times Book Review

"Published as a catalog in conjunction with a recent exhibition at New York City's Bard Graduate Center, this opus is the size of an encyclopedia—and it's just as useful as one."—Surface

“…..a remarkable book….a fascinating story.”—Selvedge

“A must for any design aficionado”—The Clerkenwell Post
