Silk

My latest completed proofread for Pen & Sword Books was something very different from my normal ‘beat’. This was a history of silk and its manufacture over many years, starting in China. Written by historian and broadcaster Anthony Burton, the book describes how silk was originally used for making clothing in China and then spread to Asia and Europe. What was interesting was how silk has been used for purposes much removed from the most obvious. A useful and interesting read.
