Chintz, or glazed printed cotton fabric, was an important part of many nineteenth-and twentieth-century decorative schemes. Bold and colorful chintzes were used for curtains, bed hangings and loose covers for furniture in sets intended for whole suites of rooms. The chintz at Brodsworth Hall in Yorkshire is an important collection that has survived in astonishing completeness, and comprises over 500 pieces in over 100 designs from the 1840's to the 1980's. The collection has been catalogued and conserved, and is the subject of an exhibition at Brodsworth. This book, beautifully illustrated with both modern and archive photographs, accompanies the exhibition and offers a fascinating insight into Victorian decorative fashions. Chapters on the history and the use of chintz provide an important and fascinating background to the story.

Rhi Nolan, a newly widowed mother of three teenagers, has just moved to La Follette County, but already she has her hands full. Her new law practice isn't going as well as she thought it would and the town is full of quirky characters who seem overly interested in her past. There is a nosy policeman following her around town giving her tickets, her teenagers are rebelling, and the local Lothario has just dropped dead in her best friend's living room. There seems to be a plethora of blond suspects, none of them friendly. And when Rhi investigates, she becomes embroiled in a game of cat and mouse with a madman. No wonder she wants to escape New Belgium, "Where folks are happy and life is heavenly."This is the first in a series of cozy mysteries set in the mythical little town of New Belgium, La Follette County, Wisconsin.

India has been at the heart of the global trade in textiles since ancient times, and cotton has been at the heart of the Subcontinent's economy for millennia. Indian dyed and painted cottons were admired in and traded to the Far East and the Mediterranean world for many generations before European interest in chintz created a new market. The trade in Indian cloth flourished due to the ability of its craftsmen to create a multitude of detailed and expressive patterns with strong and fast colors. Such textiles gained high esteem among the elite at home and abroad, ultimately acquiring heirloom status. Karun Thakar has been collecting textile art for more than 30 years, and has one of the world's leading private collections from the Indian Subcontinent, with costume and fabrics from the 14th century through to the early 20th. Aspects of the Thakar Collection have been exhibited in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The Indian dyed and painted cotton cloths in the Thakar Collection are perhaps the best in private hands. Many have never previously been published. Dating from the 15th century onwards, the collection illustrates the trade in textiles across the Indian Ocean with the Malay-Indonesian world, with Sri Lanka, Armenia and Europe, as well as within the Indian domestic market.
