"The Tapestry is reproduced in full colour, with captions on a fold-out page for easy reference. A second reproduction of the Tapestry in black and white has a detailed accompanying commentary. Sir David Wilson provides an up-to-date summary of the historical evidence, explaining each episode and covers related topics such as the costumes, armour, ships, buildings and customs." "As a social document the Tapestry is of incalculable value. As a work of art the Tapestry is the sole survivor of a form which may once have been wide-spread, the wall-hanging commemorating the deeds of a great man."--BOOK JACKET." ;
