Shooting From The Hip: Genoa 26/10/2010

The cool, gilded elegance of the Durazzo-Giustiniani archive in Genoa, where I have been reading the household account books of a sixteenth-century noblewoman.


  1. Oooo! would so love to be doing that :) Wonder if you have any reading recommendations for basic European 17thC textile history? My next *big* project *may* be about the representation of textiles in early modern French lit :)

  2. Oh - gorgeous, and your research sounds fascinating!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - I adore reading them! I shall endeavour to reply (in comment form), so do check back.
