This book is written with compassion,scholarship and wit. Usually esoteric subjects like philology and textile history are transformed by the author's ability to make the reader see into the past and out into the world - a world described with love and a zestful appreciation. Ranging across a multitude of disciplines, intriguing information is presented to nourish discussion and debate, but best of all, everything is invariably described with humanity, wit and a warm-heart. I would like to thank the author for a delightful reading experience.
