From its front cover to the last page, Cindy Brick's latest book titled simply Crazy Quilts is a masterpiece of sumptuous and elegant photos of crazy quilts, both antique and contemporary, and is a true celebration of all that we might call "Victoriana" ... The book is a page turner, and yet, I dawdled and lingered over each page, not wanting the book to end... Even if you are the type who doesn't read books with words, or even if you speak a foreign language only, the photos and illustrations are well worth the price of this book, Crazy Quilts. I can guarantee that you will return to it, again and again, for inspiration. Many thanks to Cindy Brick for the quality and quantity of information she shares about a subject she loves, the Victorian Age and its textiles.
