Format: Paperback
This was a bit of an impulse purchase, being an A Level Textiles teacher it's sometimes difficult to read between the lines of the textbooks to find a definitive version of the evolution of man-made fibres. This book DOES provide that, direct from the 'horses mouth' as such. The author worked within the industry for many years, particularly during the heyday of synthetics and his knowledge of the industry is impressive. I actually found this an entertaining read, after getting accustomed to the individual writing style and I enjoyed the book as a social history document in itself. In summary - great if you're a fibres nerd like myself, and an important document of the time.
