Textiles - the whole story

Author of Textiles - the whole story, Beverley Gordon, takes the reader through art and craft, history and anthropology, and science to explain how important fabrics truly are to us all. 

In this book, published by Thames and Hudson in 2011, Beverley looks at the world's textiles for examples of their influence on language, on social activity, on religion, on trade and on the world of art. It is a fascinating book with lots of illustrations, some of which you can see here, to add to the collection.
