Threads of Feeling Online Exhibition

Many of you have read about the Threads of Feeling exhibition, which is made up of 18th century textile tokens that were left with abandoned babies at the London Foundling Hospital.  The Foundling Museum has just come out with a very nice online exhibition, with beautiful high resolution images of some of the textile scraps.  Beautiful, and really heartbreaking!

You can read more about the exhibition.  There’s also an exhibit catalog, although it’s listed as out of print on Amazon, and out of stock on Amazon.co.uk.  Not sure if it came and went, or if it’s just not really available yet!
