It is completely useless book. It has many old pictures that basically useless b/s given without sequence of steps, show the old type of fabric, has a lot of general information, that you wouldn't need if you want to learn upholstery. I am sure there are better books out there.
the shipping and price was good. but I didn't expect this book to be so outdated.
thought this book had some colorful photographs, but not disappointed a very informative book. Have to do some reading to really gasp the information, but contain some good secrets of the trade, will continue reading.
The book was in great shape. There were no markings and no bent pages. It arrived on a timely basis.
Upholstery Techniques Illustrated does seem to be fairly thorough, but as other reviewers have noted, the photography is middling to horrible, and the projects shown are far beyond "dated"--they're horrifying!

Herculon and that miserable synthetic shiny velvet stuff are heavily featured. The furniture itself is awful--although some of the 50's era stuff has come back into vogue, making this a possible reference for today's urban chic.

The text is drab but clear, although the terrible illustrations offer minimal support for it. This is a subject for which good illustrations, in my opinion, are indispensable. Overall, the book reminds me of the awful textbooks we had in high school shop class--very old, very boring, and a hulking obstacle to getting on with the excitement of actual creativity.

Moreover, I was hoping to reupholster antique furniture, and the book is very sparse in its treatment of traditional materials, instead focusing on polyurethane foam. Deep button-tufting is lightly covered, but only over foam. The furniture I'm working with features deep channel backs, and this is not included in any useful way.

For someone who is in need of technical expertise, isn't working with antiques, and doesn't mind a very dry presentation, this might be a useful book. For me, it's uninspiring and intimidating, a real disappointment from a book published in the last 15 years.
I use this book as a reference for specific upholstery repair issues. There are not many good upholstery books out there, but this is one of the better ones. The fact that it is illustrated is a big bonus, a picture is worth a thousand words. It is well organized and approaches aspects in a systematic manner.

I agree with the other reviewer. Though the book is profusely illustrated, the photos are B&W and many are of mediocre photographic quality and choice of fabric texture to make clear photos. With today's quality of color photos in many DIY books, this one is in need of an update. It could also use a little better editing so the photos are on the same page as the accompanying text.
I bought this some years ago, purely on its representation as being suitable for students and professionals. I was very disappointed when I received it and so were my students. The book lacks detailed informaton for the traditional upholsterer on many aspects of the work, and therefore could not be described as a definitive work!

We felt that the publishers and the printers obviously did not understand the need for clear enlarged pictures showing detail if the book is to be used as a teaching resource for any thorough course, or for individual use by anyone wanting to learn without the aid of a professional upholsterer.

A disappointing resource and quite frankly a rather boring book!
I just received this book yesterday and already I have learned a great deal about re-upholstery. This book has made me very excited and confident that I can do a good job on my first project. As far as I can tell it covers just about every issue in concise and easy to understand language. I would give it a 5 star rating but for the darkness of some of the photos. However, there are an abundance of photos and if you read the instructions carefully then a few dark photos won't be much of a hinderance. If you are interested in learning about upholstery then this is the book and you can't beat the price for this much information.
