Cravats cartoon from a Milan newspaper, 1827, scanned from The Art of Sewing: Classic Techniques, by the editors of Time-Life Books, 1973. Bookmark it so you’ll have something to refer to the next time you’re seeking a Byronic Irish gastronome or a sentimental ballroom mathematician.

More from this series of books coming very soon — they’re amazing. In the meantime, see how nice they look in a stack here. I didn’t buy that whole stack but I’ve got a good start on my own stack.
