The Golden Thread How Fabric Changed History

by Kassia St. Clair, The Golden Thread How Fabric Changed History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Golden Thread How Fabric Changed History books, A Sunday Times (UK) Book of the Year Shortlisted • Society of Authors' Somerset Maugham Award A BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week The best-selling author of The Secret Lives of Color returns with this rollicking narrative of the 30,000-year history of fabric, briskly told through thirteen charismatic episodes. From colorful 30,000-year-old threads found on the floor of a Georgian cave to the Indian calicoes that sparked the Industrial Revolution, The Golden Thread weaves an illuminating story of human ingenuity. Design journalist Kassia St. Clair guides us through the technological advancements and cultural customs that would redefi ne human civilization—from the fabric that allowed mankind to achieve extraordinary things (traverse the oceans and shatter athletic records) and survive in unlikely places (outer space and the South Pole). She peoples her story with a motley cast of characters, including Xiling, the ancient Chinese empress credited with inventing silk, to Richard the Lionhearted and Bing Crosby. Offering insights into the economic and social dimensions of clothmaking—and countering the enduring, often demeaning, association of textiles as “merely women’s work”—The Golden Thread offers an alternative guide to our past, present, and future.

The Golden Thread

by Joscelyn Godwin, The Golden Thread Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Golden Thread books, The Golden Thread traces the interconnectedness of esoteric wisdom in the Western world, from classical antiquity to contemporary Europe and America. Joscelyn Godwin lends personal perspective to an arrangement of text that is historical and wisdom that is timeless, creating a source of inspiration that calls us to action in our everyday spiritual practice. Every chapter, therefore, makes reference to some aspect of contemporary life and issues of immediate concern. Elegantly written and not without irony and humor, readers will appreciate the non-threatening tone of Godwin’s writing, which is not meant to preach or convert but rather inform the public on an often baffling field. Educated readers who are curious about the esoteric and mystery traditions and interested in finding surprising, new approaches to subjects that veer away from the trends of current thought will be particularly drawn to this book.

The Golden Thread

by Ewan Clayton, The Golden Thread Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Golden Thread books, The Golden Thread is an enthralling and accessible history of the cultural miracle that is the written word. It is an invention that has been used to share ideas in every field of human endeavour, and a motor of cultural, scientific and political progress. From the simple representative shapes used to record transactions of goods and animals in ancient Egypt, to the sophisticated typographical resources available to the twenty-first-century computer user, the story of writing is the story of human civilization itself. Ewan Clayton marks each step in the historical development of writing, and explores the social and cultural impact of every stage: the invention of the alphabet; the replacement of the papyrus scroll with the codex in the late Roman period; the perfecting of printing using moveable type in the fifteenth century and the ensuing spread of literacy; the industrialization of printing during the Industrial Revolution; the impact of artistic Modernism on the written word in the early twentieth century - and of the digital switchover at the century's close. The Golden Thread raises issues of urgent interest for a society living in an era of unprecedented change to the tools and technologies of written communication. Chief amongst these is the fundamental question: 'What does it mean to be literate in the world of the early twenty-first century?' The Golden Thread belongs on the bookshelves of anyone who is inquisitive not just about the centrality of writing in the history of humanity, but also about its future.

The Golden Thread

by Leanne Hamley, The Golden Thread Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Golden Thread books, The Golden Thread is a blueprint for authentic organizational culture: what it is, what it isn't, why it matters, and how to build it. If you are passionate about creating an environment where people thrive, you'll understand the value of real engagement and values alignment. But how do you make it happen? Consciously or not, company culture runs like a golden thread through any organization, and where it is not thoughtfully nurtured it unravels - leaving a toxic environment filled with bureaucracy, politics and poor mental health. The Golden Thread guides business leaders through this concept - exploring cultural diagnostics and revealing what they really mean. This book will show you how to design and develop your own target culture, one that is right for your people and business. It then takes you step by step through the employee lifecycle, helping you to weave your new cultural and values through everything to build a happy, healthy, high performing organization. Leanne Hamley is an experienced leader and business coach specializing in behavioural change, leadership development and organizational culture.
