Item condition: New

This book was given to WARP member Molly Martin as a gift from Alice Brown, who established the Alice Brown Memorial Scholarship. The proceeds from this item will go to the Alice Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund

From Molly:

“This is the paperback book in French which discusses woad (pastel in French). It was published in 1988 in Toulouse. Alice had taped a bag of woad seeds in the back cover and told me they were OLD  (her word and caps!) The seeds are from France and were of a type grown there in the late 1980s. They look as if they might be plantable. At least they look the same now as when she gave them to me in 2005.  The book contains many color photos and a complete economic and cultural history of the plant in France. Alice was fluent in French and involved with dye plants, so this book really commemorates some of her varied interests.”
