The Devil’s Cloth (A History of Stripes)

Written by Michael Pastourneau (trans. Jody Glodding)
Review by Cindy Vallar

Stripes are part of our everyday lives, but depending on how or where we encounter them, they evoke certain impressions. This thought-provoking book examines the stripe’s development in western fashion, from its scandalous entry during the Middle Ages to today. Readers are unlikely to ever again look at any stripe without interpreting it.
