Noses in books

At the end of July three of the cases in the Textile Gallery will contain a new selection of objects from our collection.  The items were chosen last year to allow us plenty of time to get them ready for display.  A big part of this is research.

Our textiles books

At the moment I am working with three volunteers to prepare what we call ‘Fact Files’.  These folders provide extra information for people who want to know more about what they’ve seen.  We have been leafing through stacks of books trying to find nice images, articles and other things that will add something extra to the displays.  Here is a little taster of the kind of thing we look for (though he doesn’t look too happy about being dressed up).  More to come in later posts…
