5.0 out of 5 stars simply wonderful!, 13 Jan 2010
As a corset fascinated stage designer, I really was looking for such a book! every corset has a short text description a good large colour photo and a wonderfully accurate pattern. Picture an early naturalists descriving and patiently drawing birds, plants or insect, well you'll feel the same passion here! the book also gives some info about corset construction, 2 step by step projects (not detailed enough for a beginner) and some addresses to purchase all you need for corsetmaking.
If it had also pictures of the inside of the corsets (only one of them is pictured inside), it would be just perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful! excellent pictures and interesting text, 13 Jan 2010
as a stage designer I'm always in search of detailed informations about period costume, I found this book really marvelous, plenty of wonderful large coloured pictures and accurate interesting texts. the organisation of costumes in the book is also very interesting: "the male image, historicism, romantic styles, exoticism, innovations, construction details, the natural world" showing various influences of the ninetennth cetury fashion.

This review is from: 12 COLOUR ANIMAL BLOCKS (Toy)
I was quite disappointed with the quality the blocks are covered with paper and not quite young child resistent, the box could be stroger as well! anyway this is a good toy with many funny possbilities like making a big tower and shoot it down or creating monsters!
