I'm a bit of a bibliophile, as you might have guessed. This blog seems like a good place to share some of my books. Last week my cousin (and blogger) James had a question for me about these vintage "Fast Color" bandannas, and their elephant logo. While I didn't ever find a good connection between elephants, fast color, and indigo (if anyone knows of any, let me know!) I did uncover an old book on my bookshelf that I hadn't opened in ages.
Matthew's Textile Fibers, from 1947. It's an old library book, chock full of in depth info on fibers and their various properties. Good reference for all fibers pre-1947. Kind of dry, but thorough. Love the library card and pocket on the inside back cover.
