Looking for a copy of A Tailor's Book
- I am looking for a copy of "A tailor's book : from the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice", edited by Alessandra Molfino, published in 1987. I enjoy doing late period, and want to work on some later Italian pieces. Any assistance in obtaining a copy would be appreciated. I have requested the book for interlibrary loan, but only 2 universities in the states have the book available, both in New York.
