Another Five Minute History page got posted to Fashion Historians Unite, this one on Worth and as usual full of bullshit. I wish there were a way to get people to stop believing it's a good site, or just to get David James to stop writing about fashion when he knows nothing about it. Guess I will deal with this by turning several into a BadHistory post.
Sent out my book proposal to Bloomsbury! I feel like I have a chance because they published How To Read A Dress, but otoh they might be like "we published HTRAD, do we really need another guide?" I should contact the Boston MFA again, see if they ever made a decision about the Galerie des Modes (my nightmare scenario is that they decide to reprint it but want to do their own translations in-house and years of my work suddenly becomes worthless because info I posted on my blog instantly becomes meaningless the second someone else publishes the same or a similar thing).
