Very excited today to have a copy of Gespach's 'Coptic Textile Designs' arrive.

The 1987 Dover edition only has the original 144 patterns without the original text, so they lack any kind of context or description, even size, but unlike so many sources they are sized for easy imitation. A goldmine for the Late Roman Living Historian who knows the chronology well enough to pick suitable patterns, or who isn't too worried about the precise dating and is happy just to find authentic patterns.

I have that text too. It's a great resource.
