Description Shipping Notes
 

Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry.

American toile is scenic fabric and wallpaper that bring the story of America to life. These delightful prints depict both historic events and everyday moments beginning with colonial times and moving right on up to the present. Over 180 bright color photos capture American toile in its many themes. While based on a European design model, American toile is quintessentially American. It portrays cowboys and Indians, farmers and suburbanites, slaves and soldiers. Its major illustrated topics include the colonial era, the new republic, the Civil War, the West, farm and city life, maritime and leisure activities, as well as a variety of patriotic symbols. In addition to a historical introduction and identification guide, the book includes antique, vintage, and reproduction toile patterns, along with original contemporary designs. It is fifty percent American history, fifty percent fabric history, and one hundred percent fascinating!
