Being land-locked here in Colorado in late winter has given me a serious case of wanderlust. Not that we’ve had a brutal winter, it’s actually been mild and sunny here of late. It probably has more to do with the fact that much of Linda’s days and mine are spent working on books about textile traditions in far-flung places. I’ve been eye-ball deep in the highlands of Peru lately, and lucky for me, that’s a place where I’m very happy to spend my time. Our book projects are also taking us (if only in our mind’s eye) to the streets of Kandahar and to the villages of Hill Tribe Laos.
Beyond that, many of our authors live and travel in far-flung places, too, so we get dispatches from Mexico and Morocco, from Peru and Guatemala, and from one author who’s on a ship teaching a semester-at-sea course. Who knows what country (or ocean?) she’s in this week. And of course, we’re plotting future books, which involves trips to yet more places, but you’ll find out about that soon enough!
In the meantime, join me in a bit of armchair adventure to the lands of Thrums Books, past and present.
