Dressed in Nås

Margaret Jonth

The book gives a detailed picture of how the people in Nås parish in Västerdalarna dressed for 400 years. A description that is possible thanks to a meticulous review of archival sources including preserved estate records, church records and travelogues and other literature. Together with well-known fashion trends and political currents, a puzzle has been put together. Artists' pictures, early photographs and inventories of preserved costume garments in the area and museum collections as well as recordings and interviews of older Nås residents give extra color and life to the depiction, not least through all dialectal words and expressions.

Svärdsjö Hembygdsförening through 100 years

In 1921, the first board of Svärdsjö Hembygdsförening was formed. More than a hundred years later, the association still exists, and they celebrate it with a book. Using old protocols, newspaper clippings and activity reports, the local community association has been able to research and find out how things used to be. But everything they have found has not found a place in the book, but it is a selection.

“What we want with this book release is to summarize the last hundred years. That it should in itself provide memories and stories, and that it should make people more interested in the culture and natural heritage of the homeland. That you can feel joy and pride in passing it on to future generations "
