textiles history - an exhibition catalogue
I've been eyeing up this book for ages and finally found one on Amazon. So when it arrived and I started to read - it turns out its the catalogue from an exhibition at a gallery near me that took place about 15 years ago.
And I know the staff at the gallery, and the woman who organised the show.
And I could have just emailed someone and asked them for a copy out of a cupboard in the stores no doubt!
Ah well, I'm still very happy to have it anyway - it's fascinating.
It also has a foreword by Terence Conran looking very young. I used to work for him for a while - but that's another story...
