Cloth, Inventions That Changed Our Lives
Elizabeth Simpson Smith
Cloth -- the base product of the immense and complex textile industry -- continues to have new applications and an ever increasing impact on our lives today. Beyond the simple and obvious uses of cloth for household goods and clothing, this versatile product has industrial applications that startle the imagination. These, along with an overview of the history of textiles and of the primary inventors who helped change the creation of woven goods, are detailed in this book. A fascinating story, well told and well illustrated with photos and engravings.
