We have a display of Library materials on the theme of silk at Commercial Road Library.
Ranging from The Silk Book, 1951 to Wroughte in gold and silk : preserving the art of historic tapestries, 2009. Books on both the history and the design of this fascinating textile are well-represented in the Library collection.
Feel free to ask if you would like to borrow any of the items on display
The inspiration for the exhibition is the Golden Spider Silk exhibition at the Victoria & Albert museum (until 5th June 2012)
