“Fur: A Sensitive History is an exceptionally successful book in that it takes on an incredibly complicated material and provides readers with a solid understanding of the complex history of fur when no other book exists on the topic.”—Carson Poplin, Journal of Dress History
“The volume lives up to the sensory nature of the subject and is attractively designed and illustrated with extensive colour and black and white photographs...This makes the book a pleasure to look at and read, while the juxtaposition of images from different time periods
and disciplines inspires reflection and comparisons.”—Danielle Sprecher, Journal of Design History
