Modern Threads: Fashion and Art by Mariska Karasz

This fully illustrated book on fashion designer and fiber artist Mariska Karasz (1898-1960) by Ashley Callahan, curator of the Henry D. Green Center for the Study of the Decorative Arts, accompanies the exhibition of the same name at the Georgia Museum of Art from January 20 to April 15, 2007. It is divided into three major sections, one focusing on her fashion design for women, one on her fashion design for children and one on her embroidered wall hangings. With many full-color images representing all three of these categories, it is the most comprehensive work published on Karasz. This book was shortlisted by the Costume Society of America for the Millia Davenport Publication Award.
