All together respectably dressed

The reason for my absence the past half year has been, as many of you know, that I've been writing a book.Well, it is  finally done.


I have to immediatly dissappoint you: it is not (yet) for sale and I won't be putting the pdf online. The current book has been printed on a mere 20 volumes: 6 for the jury of my PhD defence, 2 for the university library, 1 for the Bruges Municipal Archives, 2 for my colleagues, and the rest for a very small selection of family and friends.


The good news is that I will do everything I can to get it published over the next year, so hopefully in 2017 it will be available to you as well.


In the mean time I have this sneak preview for you. I'm so happy that it is done and satisfied with how it looks that I just need to share it!







So, if all goes to plan, I'll be Dr. Isis in a few weeks (I'll have to get used to that)!

Congratulations! It looks gorgeous, and I would really love to have a copy. But before you start doing all the editing, don't forget to take a proper and well-earned break.

This is so awesome! Congratulations! Clothing and culture in the Low Countries during this era has been my research passion for the past 20 years. It's what prompted my husband and me to visit Belgium on our first and second trips to Europe. (Friends kept asking, "Why not London or Paris?" No one seemed to understand our choice.) I'm so glad you've finely accomplished this milestone in your research and hope you will be able to publish in the near future. I, for one, would be thrilled to acquire a copy.

The book is absolutely beautiful, and I certainly want one - when you get it published. If no publishing company wants to do it you could consider having a crowdfund for the printing etc? I'm sure there's plenty of history&clothing geeks (including me!) who would like to preorder a copy!

Congratulations!
From all I have seen and read here, I am certainly looking forward to seeing this book coming alive for all of us. I would love to have it for the next round of my lectures on history of clothing...
Best wishes, Bele

My SCA persona is Catherine Annot de Bruges. When the book is published I will see many ideas for garb. Looking forward to that day.
