just curious - when was the zipper invented?


Got me wondering so I looked it up. The short answer is that the "modern" zipper became popular in the early 20th century... the back closing on that dress would be hooks and eyes wouldn't it?

Here's the link with all the gory detail:

Oh well, that is a really cover, however. But I'd have to agree, seriously definied back muscles. Maybe the vicar's daughter had to do manual labor??

I think these are gorgeous.







Whose job is the cover art, anyway? At what point in the publishing process is it decided and who decides? (Whoever it is for this author loves her, I think.)

Gail, Love this cover (the Follett book) It sort of "matches" Pillars, in a way. I'm off to buy this today....it is an armful of book though, clocking in at over 1,000 pages...yikes, and at a whopping 35.00 price tag. I have been looking forward to it for quite some time.

I totally agree that these covers are gorgeous. Who are the cover gods, and what has Sharon Maas done to be so blessed by them (and what has Loretta Chase done to annoy them, considering some of her covers which are completely at odds with the quality of the books within)?
