Olivia Terry, Regional History Librarian, recommends The Golden Thread by Kassia St. Clair.
Upholding to my love of fashion and dress history, I selected The Golden Thread: How Fabric Changed History for my book review.
I grew up loving clothing, and even more, the history stitched into its seams.
This book examines the textiles that have made up centuries of clothing . . .from the woolen sails used on Viking ships to the space suits used to put a man on the moon.
St. Clair breaks down the saga of cloth in thirteen fascinating chapters, spanning centuries, continents, and different cultural implications. . .
