The story of Muslin

Muslin, that utilitarian fabric, has a rich and colourful history. Now, thanks to a generous gift from one of our loyal readers, we are reading all about it.

This book arrived in the mail during the week. We thought that it was to be posted onto the USA after we had read it but no, it is a gift to me at the studio. Full of pictures and with a text that it both scholarly and yet personal, it traces the story of the fine cloth from Bangladesh through to its enrichment of the Western world by trade. It looks fascinating and I cannot wait to read it properly. Thank you for the wonderful gift, Kind Reader.
