Quilt of States
There is no book quite like Quilt of States --the unique combination of handmade quilts with the voice of each state heard through the writing of one of the state's librarians to illustrate the coming together of the United States of America. Using one of the only two original American folk art forms--quilting (jazz is the other)--Adrienne Yorinks demonstrates her amazing talent for using quilts not only as art, but as information sources. Her work illustrates the history of our country and is accompanied by the words of librarians from every state in the Union.
