A plus side to the current corona virus situation is that many people now have more time to read books! The diversity of some of the available textile and dress books recently acquired by the TRC Library is reflected in a new annotated book list for March 2020.

It has to be admitted that the compiler of this book list is not able to read all the books in detail, as they range in languages from English, Hebrew, Norwegian, Portuguese, to Serbian. However, most of the books are copiously illustrated, and provided with a summary (and if required in English), which makes it possible to follow the main lines discussed by the various authors.

Another list will appear within a few weeks with some more books that will be of interest, while reflecting the growing depth of the TRC Library. We want to make the TRC library (holding at present more than 3700 items) as varied as possible with a wide range of subjects and languages: books that literally reflect the world of textiles in all its facets.
