'An astonishing feat'
Christina Patterson, Sunday Times

'An inspiring and moving sideways look at history'
Eithne Farry, Sunday Express

An eloquent blend of history and memoir, Threads of Life is an evocative and moving book about the need we all have to tell our story.

From political propaganda in medieval France to secret treason in Tudor England, from the mothers of the desaparecidos in Argentina to First World War soldiers with PTSD, from a POW camp in Singapore to a family attic in Scotland, Threads of Life is a global chronicle of identity, protest, memory and politics.

Banner-maker, community textile artist and textile curator Clare Hunter chronicles the stories of the men and women, over centuries and across continents, who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate of circumstances.

'A beautifully considered book... Clare Hunter has managed to mix the personal with the political with moving results.' TRACY CHEVALIER
