>Subject: [MEDTC-DISCUSS] Book publication to come
>since quite a few of you seem to read German, I would like to do a
>little advertising on my own (and my book project's) behalf:
>I have successfully finished my phd thesis "Konstruktion und
>Nähtechnik mittelalterlicher weltlicher Kleidung" in Summer 2008. The
>thesis is a comprehensive survey of extant medieval garments with
>analysis of cutting, construction development and sewing techniques.
>It is written in German with an English summary; you can get more
>information (in German) about the volume and the topics covered on my
>website www.pallia.net/buchprojekt.html. I have already found a
>wonderful publisher for the book, and publication is being prepared.
>However, two obstacles are left to overcome: Get funding for the costs
>of the print run, and determining the right number of copies to print.
>Since it will take at least eight months until the book can be
>released - a long wait for you - and it is very hard to evaluate how
>many people will be interested - a problem for the publishing house
>and me - I am offering subscription to a newsletter that will
>hopefully help us all:
>I am sending a short newsflash whenever a step in the publishing
>process is finished, keeping you up to date. You will know at once
>when the book can be pre-ordered, which means no delay for you in
>getting the book delivered. In return, having a number of seriously
>interested people on the newsletter list will help me negotiating with
>the publishing house and my editor and me in determining the number of
>copies to print. We are aiming for the price range 60-80 Euro for the
>book (hardcover with b/w illustration and coloured plates).
>If you are interested in getting this book, please subscribe to my
>newsletter by sending an e-mail with the subject "subscribe" to
>Please feel free to forward this mail to friends, relations and
>colleagues that might also be interested!
