A valuable addition to the history of textile production. * THE VICTORIAN *
Required reading for those interested in textile and fashion history [and] the Arts and Crafts movement. * ASIAN TEXTILES *
Including detailed narrative, historical black-and-white photographs, and color plates of gorgeous silk and gold embroideries, this volume fully documents the Wardles' important roles as entrepreneurs and community leaders. Recommended. * CHOICE *
King's account is notable for its close descriptions of the original textile [Bayeux Tapestry] in France as well as the copy created in Leek. She examines both in great detail and provides an eminently informative narrative [.] -- PAUL ANDERTON
Brenda M. King's richly illustrated historical account shifts the focus from Thomas Wardle to his wife, family and wider social and cultural milieu. * MIDLAND HISTORY *
It is a valuable resource and will, hopefully, lead to the discovery of further archive material about the Leek embroiderers and the work of the intriguing Wardle family. * SPAB, THE SOCIETY FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANCIENT BUILDINGS *
This book belongs on the bookshelves of those interested not only in the Wardle family, but also in architecture, textile dying and printing, and embroidery of the Victorian era-the time of the Arts and Crafts movement, Gothic Revivalism, and the Aesthetic Movement. -- Maureen Daly Goggin * Victorian Studies *
