A #vintage #weaving book find at Powell's! The author of The Romance of French Weaving started work after the Great War documenting the history of the French weaving tradition, weighing the inevitable march of mechanization and mass-production against craft. Quantity vs quality. The conversation continues today.
@kyle What year?
@jhamner The book was first printed in 1931 but my copy is from 1936.
@kyle Interesting time. I'm going to try to find a copy. Thanks.
