“L’Art Du Tailleur” 1767

There are such days like these that fill my heart with joy… I was lucky enough to be able to purchase a pure piece of history. Although this book is available online and digitally http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k108876j. I am now a very proud owner of an original dated 1767. “The Art of the Tailor” François-Alexandre-Pierre Garsault (1693-1778).

This post will be a short one, I just wanted to share my excitement of this absolute thing of beauty. To be able to hold a book like this which is dripping history. I will come back to this era in more detail in the future, that I do not doubt. I have a few other posts on the go at the moment, drafting in the background, so must make sure I do not get pulled down that rabbit hole and side tracked as I have done this year…. All soon will be revealed 😀
