Book Description

1 April 2013
This superbly illustrated book provides a fascinating insight into the costumes and fabrics of theTudor and Stuart age. Detailing both the leading fashions of the day and the appeal to painters of timeless classical dress, this book considers both those who led taste and the influence of international fashions of the period. Drawing not only on portraits, but also on contemporary accounts, literary references and examples of garments - which are considered both in terms of their visual qualities and their technical construction - this publication provides a new and valuable examination of Tudor and Stuart costume and the ways in which artists have represented fabrics in paint.

By Guy Mannering VINE VOICE
Fashion surely reached the pinnacle of extravagance and magnificence in the 16th and early 17th centuries and we are fortunate that the era produced great painters with the technical virtuosity to reproduce in almost photographic detail the rich brocades, gleaming silks, the lace, furs, feathers and pearls that bedecked their aristocratic patrons. Courtly costumes proclaimed power, status and wealth and, my goodness, if you had it you flaunted it. Being anything less than OTT was not an option.

This large, lavish and richly illustrated book chronicles the courtly clobber of the period with examples taken mostly from the Royal Collections. Simply to hold and open up this book provides you with an aesthetic pleasure and experience of a kind that Kindle and e-books can never duplicate; and if, like me, you have a tendency in art galleries to scrutinize old master paintings at close range to see how the effects were achieved, this book duly obliges with many close-ups so that you can gaze in wonder at the meticulous, painstaking detail. The text is unfailingly interesting and informative. Whether you're interested in Tudor/Stuart history, the history of costume, the history of art, or simply enjoy looking at old master paintings, I can enthusiastically recommend this handsome book. I notice that some Amazon partners are offering new copies for as little as 25 and at that price the book is an absolute steal.

5.0 out of 5 stars STYLE - Tudor and Stuart court fashion 10 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely superb publication in all ways. One of the most beautiful publications/catalogues I have seen for some time. As well as being very clearly arranged for the various sections dealt with, the illustrations and numerous details of the paintings and actual costumes could not be bettered. Having viewed the exhibition its self, at the Queen's Gallery, I can vouch for the quality and value of the images, in some ways being even better than the actual exhibits themselves. The written content is also clear, concise and enlightening.
Anyone interested in any aspect of fashion, portraiture, period painting, portraiture or other historical area of the period would find delight, I am sure, in this publication. Get a copy - quick!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book. 25 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a large, beautifully produced and fantastically well illustrated book. It is far more than the catalogue of the 2013 exhibition at Buckiham Palace, which it purports to be. It is a must for anyone interested in the art, costume and especially the lace of this period. It may seem expensive, but is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous book 13 Aug 2013
By Minerva
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For anyone interested in costume and/ or Tudor and Stuart history this book is a must. I found it to be well written and informative without being dry and the photography is gorgeous. There are lots of visual and verbal descriptions of the fabrics and forms of clothing and jewelry that were used. I was so pleased with the book I purchased a second copy for a friend's birthday. I hope she enjoys it as much as I am.

A beautifully produced book and a must for students of fashion history. The fashion is looked at through portraiture of the age and therefore works mainly with the fashions of the wealthy in Tudor and Stuart times. It goes into some detail into the mores of fashion of the age as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunningly beautiful and highly detailed book 12 Oct 2013
I had this book on my wish list for a while, wondering if it was worth the money. Then a good friend showed me her copy and a knew I had to own it.

As a lover of historical costume I have found this book invaluable. There are many detailed photographs and a wealth of information, considering there are not many truly period pieces left in the world.

I am using this to help me recreate a Tudor costume, and as a member of the English Civil War Society have found it one of the best on the subject out there. I cannot recommend it highly enough
