The Art of Comfort
Although The Art of Comfort: Antique Quilts and Bed Coverings from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection was published as a catalog for an exhibition, quilt lovers will still want it for their libraries. Renowned quilt collectors Paul D. Pilgrim (1942–1996) and Gerald E. Roy, inspired by their interior design business, began collecting quilts in the 1960s. Forty quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection of more than 2,500 quilts are featured, each in full-color and shown on separate pages. Dating from 1880 to 1940, the quilts are striking.
