Clothes for Disabled People
This is one of those “where are they now” discussions. Or we can call it a #throwbackthursday type of post.
Back in 2009 when we started this little dog and pony show, we just put up covers and didn’t really look to deep into some of the titles. I started looking at a few of these early titles and was a bit curious if they were still hanging out in libraries. It’s still around, but it looks like it is mostly in university libraries.
For the most part, this book is about clothing construction with a few modifications that make it easier for the user to dress themselves. When we originally posted this book, we didn’t have any interior pages. Looking at it now, I am almost shocked this was a 1981 publication. The pictures make it look much older.
I had few chuckles of the use of “attractive and fashionable clothing” from the back cover blurb. Most amusing to me was the corset discussion. I don’t think I have heard the word corset in a modern context since my great-grandmother was alive. Since this is a UK publication, maybe that was the word most commonly used. (UK people, please weigh in!)
The topic is still important, but certainly the cover art and the interior pictures make this weed-worthy for a public library.
