This is probably a little premature, but. This week at my internship, I looked at dresses. I looked at all the dresses. I've got a shortlist of cool garments for the upcoming exhibition, although it's a bit of a joke to call it a shortlist since it's far too long and I'm going to have to cut out so many. Anyway, some of these dresses are so cool that I really want to take patterns of them and share them with the world. I'm emailing my supervisor to find out if there's a possibility of publishing them in conjunction with the exhibition.
So, what I'm wondering is: how interested would you be in buying a book of ten to twenty (depending on if we were to go with only the dresses in the exhibition, or those plus some other very cool ones that there just isn't enough space for) Janet Arnold-type pattern diagrams from a range of about two centuries? If so, would being able to see the dresses and ensembles in person make you more likely to attend an exhibition in Albany, NY, even if that entailed some travel?
