Garment Register explores aspects of the commemorative, a theme of major exploration throughout Harriet Bart's career. This evocative book honors generations of anonymous women, an unsung core of modern America. Garment Register brings together pages of an old ledger with its entries of women’s names and the dues they paid. Incorporated into the pages are vintage photographs and fabrics, and prose from women writers ranging from Martha Graham to Virginia Woolf; from Willa Cather to Nor Hall.
