PEOPLE KNITTING: A CENTURY OF PHOTOGRAPHS. Barbara Levine. Princeton Architectural Press, Inc., New York, 2016. 144 pp. with 100 ills. (10 col.). 20 x 12 cm. ISBN 9781616893927 In English.
Publisher's description: People Knitting is a charming tribute in vintage photographs and printed ephemera to the ever-popular, often all-consuming, craft of knitting. When women posed with their knitting in the earliest nineteenth-century photographs, it demonstrated their virtue and skill as homemakers. Later, knitting became fashionable among the wealthy as a sign of culture and artistic ability. During the two world wars, images of nurses, soldiers, prisoners, and even knitting clubs composed of very serious small boys -- all with heads bent down, intent on knitting items (especially socks) for the troops -- abounded. In the 1950s and 1960s, as snapshots became ubiquitous, knitters took on a jauntier air, posing with handiwork held proudly aloft. People Knitting is a quirky and fascinating gift for the knitter in your life.
