1983 • First Edition of Spoken Without a Word – 2013 • Second Commemorative Edition

  • Celebrate quilt history — arguably the anniversary of the Baltimore Album Quilt Revival itself.
  • Collector’s Edition: Contemporary needleartist reproductions, glorious in rebirth; pay antebellum artistry homage and bow to those stitchers’ strength of character.
  • Hold every word of the 1983 original’s elegant black on cream texts and the engraving-like patterns — rejuvenated by color photo-close-ups of vibrant cloth and stitchery models; all this, book-ended by Elly’s Preface on where you and I were then, and where we now are; punctuated by a surprisingly futuristic Afterword.
