The Book of Fine Linen

August 26, 2010


Françoise de Bonneville has put together a lovely book tracing the history of household linens for a bride’s trousseau. The photographs are beautiful and the content is quite interesting. There are only five chapters in the entire book beginning with the vanishing tradition of the trousseau  and ending with the ornamentation of these various textiles; where “fine linen becomes extraordinary”.  This coffee table style book would be a nice addition to your collection and can be obtained through the usual on-line sources.
