From the estate of Barbara Shawcroft, a late San Francisco fabric and fashion artist, with her signature on the inside front cover. Shawcroft is mostly remembered for her 3 story high macrame piece that was hung in the San Francisco Embarcadero Bart Station in 1978 and removed in 2013.
GOOD condition, The covers are shelf rubbed, the spine has a slight slant and a vertical crease from the book being opened wide, otherwise the covers are bright and lovely. Internally, the book has a sewn binding so is holding together well; the inner pages are tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A solid, lovely book.
