These art quilts showcase such versatility, innovation, and beauty that readers can't help but be truly inspired. The gifted artists come from across the globe--including Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America--and their work displays their varying sensibilities, backgrounds, and talents.
Abstract appliqu#65533;d shapes cascade across the surface of Ita Ziv's brilliantly colored quilts, creating vibrant celebrations of life. Noriko Endo captures her deep feeling for trees in a stunning interplay of light, shadow, and leaves. Gloves appear in nearly every quilt by Jane Burch Cochran, representing probing hands and, sometimes, angel wings. John Lefelhocz's fantastic imagery--including an airplane silhouette that lights up--grabs viewers' attention.
Esteemed curator Martha Sielman, executive director of Studio Art Quilt Associates, contributes an illuminating essay for each of the 40 featured artists, who are showcased in 8- to 10-page features. The best-selling  Masters: Art Quilts stands all on its own as a coffee-table keepsake volume or with the follow-up book Masters: Art Quilts, Vol. 2 as a truly irreplaceable set to cherish for a lifetime.
