zander textiler hausratThis is amazing news for everyone interested in historical 16th century German dress (and later). Jutta Zander-Seidel’s book Textiler Hausrat: Kleidung und Haustextilien in Nürnberg von 1500-1650, which was impossible to get hold of (believe me, I tried) was digitised by the Universitäts Bibliothek Heidelberg in June and uploaded to their ART-Dok server (Digital Repository Art History).

Recommendation: historical textiles researchers to follow on Academia.edu

I’d like to recommend two Austrian academics who I have been following on Academia.edu due to their great work on historical textiles, and who have also been able to make most of their papers available on Academia.edu.
