Apologies for the orientation of these 2 photos, What a splendid book by the Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgaard – Winter. His book Autumn came out a while ago, now Winter, and I’m sure Spring and Summer are sure to follow. Just collections of kind of random essays appropriate to the season. Excellent – and thought provoking. Plus beautiful paintings.

Laces of Ipswich January 4, 2017
A great find – this book, The Laces of Ipswich, The Art and Economics of an Early American Industry by Marta Cotterell Raffel is perfect for combining my interests in history, genealogy, and economics. I am only marginally interested in lace making in that it relates to weaving…..but this is a thoroughly researched picture of an industry in early New England and just maybe some of my ancestors!
The Laces of Ipswich
