Subject: [SCA-AE] medieval clothing resource
I had the opportunity to look at the German volume, basically Dr. Kania's
dissertation on the construction of medieval clothing. It is a fabulous
resource, and should end up on many of our bookshelves.
She's trying to interest a publisher in putting together an English translation,
but needs to demonstrate interest. I urge you to sign up on her website
to demonstrate that there are plenty of people who would buy this if
it becomes available.
Not only is she a scholar, Katrin is a reenactor herself, and has put a lot
of effort into actually making and wearing the clothing she researches.
You are welcome to forward her information widely.

Subject: [MEDTC-DISCUSS] English Version of "Kleidung im Mittelalter"
as some of you might know, my dissertation about construction and
sewing technique of medieval garments in Europe from 500 to 1500,
titled "Kleidung im Mittelalter" was published in 2010 as the German
original. I have been getting requests to publish it in English as
well and have been looking for a publishing house for this.
Unfortunately, it is not the easiest of things to find a suitable
house that is interested in publication. I have, however, now found
one that is considering a publication. It's not all settled yet, but
if you are interested in buying an English version and would like to
be informed about developments, you can subscribe to an infoletter
With your subscription, you are also signaling your interest so the
publisher and me so we can figure out how big the print run can be,
and you give us an indication for pricing. And please pass on this
information - the more people know about it, the better!
Thanks and all the best,
Katrin Kania: "Kleidung im Mittelalter. Materialien - Konstruktion -
Nähtechnik. Ein Handbuch."
