It's that time of the month again :) Our monthly social is this Friday evening, from 6pm-9pm, everyone welcome, whether or not you have a project on the go! Would love to see you here :)
I figured I would share with you the original version of our store sign. It is from a CIBA reveiew. The CIBA Review was published monthly. It columns were devoted to a varied succession of articles on the history of dyeing, printing, tanning, weaving, etc., and the numerous supplementary crafts connected with the refinement of textile products. A very interesting resource. It is no longer in print, but several people have spent time scanning and digitizing it, so digital copies can be found on line.
Our sign is a depiction from Dutch theologist who published everything that he could find in the Bible with regard to textiles. The image shows a reconstruction of a loom with all of the raw materials: gold threadm flax and wool, as well as the dyes, scarlet, red and purple. Tyre was the origin of red and purple dyes.
I only took latin for one semester in high school, so I am not able to translate the text! Can anyone else?!
