Re the quote up above: I've been complaining about 19&20th C men's fashion for years without drawing this connection. It takes a Frenchman, dude.
Overall a good book with far too little focus on contemporary and non - western history. I love the High Medieval period as much as the next nerd, but the really interesting cultural stuff was hidden in the last 10 pages after thousands of words about Dyeing Guild regulations of the 1400s.

To spare my stomach I didn't go anywhere last weekend, and thus didn't get much reading done. I took my book with me for the timed wait for an abdominal CT scan yesterday, but it turns out that forcing down 1.5L of contrast liquid was quite enough, and then I got a reminder from the library. So here I am. Umbria had one sugar bun left! Feeling ok so far.

Buechersuechtling I hope the CT results turn out to be good news for you, too. Have a comfy weekend‼️🛋📚🍩☕️ 2w

Is there anything better than a postcard in the letterbox when you get home??

I adore this painting!

(Maybe bookmail?!)

I enjoyed reading this a lot! Van Gogh is an artist with so many myths about him so it was really valuable to see him as a human being in his own words. He occasionally annoyed me but it was it was still cool to see him as a vivid enough person that I could find him annoying. Most of his letters were just asking his brother for money but there was some wonderful material in between!

I love a good art discovery or art heist story. Looking forward to this one.
