Ready, Steady, Go!

Tomorrow sees the beginning of the Olympic Torch  relay around Britain. Starting at Land's End the torch will travel 8,000 miles over 70 days stopping at over 1,000 towns and cities. 

The Torch will be stopping at Middlesex University on the 25th July, just two days before the games begin. MoDA will be tracking the progress of the Olympic Torch using our extensive book collection. As well as traditional architecture and guide books that relate to the locations, we will offer alternative takes on the torch destinations and the Olympics .

And So To Begin kicks off our Olympic relay through the book collection. Although this pamphlet is about sewing, the title sets the pace for our sprint through the book collection.
And So To Begin, Needlework Development Scheme, ca.1950., Museum of Domestic Design &Architecture, BADDA4189.
Look out for our posts over the next couple of months charting  the torch's progress.

  1. What a motivating title for either sewing or racing! I especially like the fact that the title starts with "and" and that the word BEGIN is all in CAPS.
