People Knitting

BY Barbara Levine


Barbara Levine's People Knitting is a collection of vintage photographs, all depicting people in the act of... knitting! It is a totally charming tribute to the history of hand knitting and the people who did it. From early nineteenth-century photographs of women posing with their knitting to demonstrate their virtue and skill as homemakers, and World War I and II images of nurses, soldiers, prisoners, and small boys knitting for their causes, to mid-century snapshots of knitters posing with their handiwork held proudly aloft, this book reveals a rich and very fascinating history. People Knitting is a 144-page hardcover volume, and it makes the perfect addition to any knitter's library!
