[Hardcover, 256 pages] Unconventional & Unexpected: American Quilts Below the Radar, 1950-2000 (Second Edition) by Roderick Kiracofe. A popular classic is back! Famed quilt collector Roderick Kiracofe’s sumptuous hardcover book of 150 offbeat quilts became an instant classic when it was published in 2014, inspiring a nation of quiltmakers and fine artists. The book’s unforgettable quilts (largely made by anonymous quilters in the American South) and essays by leading curators and industry personalities (Amelia Peck, Kaffe Fassett, Denyse Schmidt) eventually went out of print—until now. In a copublishing venture with Quiltfolk, the long-overdue 2nd edition of this beloved book includes a new introduction by internationally lauded author and curator Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi. It also includes 20 additional never-before-seen quilts from Kiracofe’s private collection. At long last, the 2nd edition of Unconventional & Unexpected is now available again to audiences clamoring for its return.
