wonderful resource on Ackermann's fashion plates,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fashions in the Era of Jane Austen: Ackermann's Repository of Arts (Paperback)
This is a perfect bound book that is an excellent reference for anyone interested in English fashion from 1809 to 1820. The book reproduces in colour all the fashion plates from Ackermann's repository of arts from those years and also provides the descriptions that were published with the fashion plates.
The book is a wonderful reference for anyone interested in fashion during this period or for collectors of Ackermann's fashion plates. Books on these fashion plates are scarce and this will be an invaluable reference for collectors who may not otherwise ever get to see many of these fashion plates. The book is perfect bound and print on demand. It is not a glossy art book and there is some variation in the quality of the images but they are all easy to see in good size along with their descriptions underneath.
Now we just have to hope that there is a book which covers the period 1821-1829 and there'll be a full reference for people interested in these fashion plates.
