“Meller’s book is a voyage of discovery…a joyous celebration of pattern and colour, and of a way of life in Central Asia” – – Brigid Keenan STEPPE Magazine, Summer 2008
“The intriguing title with its mingling of the commonplace and the exotic, neatly sums up the esoteric collecting field that fascinates Meller and sets her apart from the typical high-end textile hunter who is searching for silken ikats or woven carpets. According to Meller’s view, machine-printed textiles qualify as ‘fine art that happens to be for a commercial product.’” – Andrea DiNoto, American Craft Magazine, Oct/Nov 2008
“Russian Textiles is one of those rare and serendipitous books that can be judged by its cover. From first bold photo to final footnote, the bright, complex language of Russian trade cottons is given full voice in Susan Meller’s new book.” – – HAND/EYE, The Aid to Artisans Magazine, Summer 2008
“This is a beautiful book to be cherished for its look as well as its content.” – – Frances Pritchard, SELVEDGE Magazine, September 2008
