Thank you so much Patricia Hilts for sending me these two special volumes

Thank you so much Patricia Hilts, 
this is a great day for Lab O !
Ars Textrina has published in 1990 two special volumes reproducing the two earliest books on weaving, the extremely rare works by Marx Ziegler (1677) and Nathaniel Lumscher (1708).
The translation, as well as the historical information concerning the textile industry in south Germany has been prepared by Patricia Hilts.
These books show the drafts of the patterns of the canvases I have reconstructed.
Today I received the volumes directly from the author Patrica Hilts, I am very grateful because it will give me insight in how the looms were prepared in that period.
That brings us closer to how these textiles were made !
