I love books like History on Two Needles. First, it’s an independently-published product of the mighty Cooperative Press. Second, it’s about a subject that might be a little too niche for many mainstream publishers, but is really fascinating.
Annie Modesitt, a renowned knitwear designer, chose a series of art pieces from various periods in history and recreated them as modern garments. It’s a dream project for her, and that enthusiasm shows.
In this video, we get a peek at some of the designs, and their historical counterparts, and Annie shares some stories of her design process. Enjoy!
