In our first blog post for the year we want to show you one of our new books – True fit: A collected history of denim by Viktor Fredbäck and Rickard Eklund. The book presents the history of jeans with text and photos. Viktor Fredbäck is a Swedish denim collector who explores old silver mines in the Nevada desert (U.S.A) in order to find jeans from the 18th century. The photos in this book show Fredbäcks collection in a really cool way, the jeans have been photographed in authentic environments on real models – really cool pictures!
The book is located at floor 3 and shelf 391 in our library. On the same shelf are other books about differens types of garments, for example the little black dress, handbags, swimsuits and more. Enjoy!
