Sandra Niessen has drawn my attention to an interesting article which she found highlighted in the Maiwa Handprints blog. The article is from The Telegraph, Calcutta, India of 28 April 2010 and points to a new book in the pipeline from Jenny Balfour-Paul (of 'Indigo' fame).

The book that Jenny is currently researching and writing is on Thomas Machell (1824-62) based on his journals which she discovered. Maiwa quotes from the newspaper article
"Jenny is working on the Story of Machells life which will be “the opposite of biography”, because she feels that the parallels between her life and his are so strong that it is almost as if they were the same person. "

Read The Telegraph article in full.

The Maiwa Handprints website and blog is full of interesting textile articles and very much time can be lost (but enjoyed!) browsing it.

In 1999 Jenny discovered the journals of Machell in the British Library. It was a remarkable find. Born in 1824, he began traveling at the age of 16.And i read this article and it is very nice to know about this thing.It is very nice and very informative.
