      Textiles list, and I thought a few people here might be interested.

      >Dear Listmembers,
      >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!
