“A feast for the eyes and the mind”: Byzantine Silk on the Silk Roads: Journeys Between East and West, Past and Present

Take a look at this beautiful book edited by Falmouth University’s senior lecturer, Sarah Braddock Clarke (and Ryoko Yamanaka Kondo). With over 200 illustrations, the book examines Byzantine woven silks from museum and archives across the world and explores how they are still inspiring fashion designers today. You have access to the e-book and a print copy too, via the Library.

If you’d like to learn more about silks, fashion and the Byzantine world we have a book display on Level 2 at Penryn Library.
