All textiles begin with a twist. From the linen wrappings of Tutankhamun's mummy to the Silk Roads, from the woollen sails that helped the Vikings reach America to the lace ruffs that infuriated puritans, our continuing reinventions of cloth offer an unexpected history of human ingenuity. In The Golden Thread Kassia St Clair takes us on the run with escaped slaves, climbing the slopes of Everest and moonwalking with astronauts, in an unforgettable journey through our past, present and future.
