Great resource
Scoreboard Bleeding
Best place to find examples of fabrics, plus definitions of historical types of fabrics that were common in the past, but no longer part of everyday knowledge. Things like calimanco and tabby will no longer be a mystery with this book at hand.

This book is super-duper, keen AND neato. It is all those things and more. Most of the detailed information applies to home furnishing textiles, such as bed coverings, upholstery and drapery, but generally, a great deal of information is provided about textiles used for many different purposes. It's much larger than I expected and the color insert has nice, large reproductions of early textile patterns and fabrics. It's a dictionary, and offers very nice definitions of textile-related terms, but it's no match for a Fairchild's. The attraction here is the illustrations and photo-inserts. This isn't a stand-alone book, but it's fantastic for a reference, particularly with an eye towards imports. They aren't kidding when they say "Textiles IN America." Not American-made mind you; but textiles that have, through various means, found their way into the country somehow. Or not. Or whatever. Like I said, pretty pictures. If you think too hard about the inclusion of French fabric swatch books, you'll lose out on all the fun. Make yourself another martini and dream up your own version of things, if it bothers you.
Comprehensive source for the serious researcher, based on original documents. Hundreds of photos of textiles, pattern books, commerical records, etc. Information is arranged in a dictionary format. There is a slight difficulty in matching photos with definitions, but it's worth the trouble.
