4.0 out of 5 stars Great pictures!
The book offers wonderful pictures of fashion from medieval art, and the informative picture texts helps to analyze and understand the depicted costumes very well (how for example different materials like silk or furs were traditionally painted and how to recognize them in art). Other texts are kept at a minimum - the book is really built on the numerous, high quality...

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointed
Nicely illustrated, however, concentrated more on the early medieval not the fifteenths century, which is what I had hoped for in fact very little in illustration of that period. Disappointing.

This review is from: Fashion in Middle Ages (Hardcover)
The book offers wonderful pictures of fashion from medieval art, and the informative picture texts helps to analyze and understand the depicted costumes very well (how for example different materials like silk or furs were traditionally painted and how to recognize them in art). Other texts are kept at a minimum - the book is really built on the numerous, high quality pictures. Of course a thin book like this can't give a complete overview on such a subject as fashion during many centuries, but it gives a nice taste of it. As a hobby-reenactor I found the book very inspiring, and it offered interesting new pieces of information that aren't all just "the common, basic stuff all reenactors allready know". However, I think that the book is also great for a much wider audience and doesn't require any previous knowledge on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, clear and fascinating, 11 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Fashion in Middle Ages (Hardcover)
It is only a small book but the illustrations and explanations are clear and interesting. Margaret Scott is known for her textile expertise and the simplicity with which everything is explained demonstrates this. The illustrations are very well photographed and selected - the cover really does show off the rest of the book.
If you are interested in Medieval fashion, this is worth reading and having to reference.
