Great Historical Context,
This review is from: The Art of Dress (Paperback)
The text gives a lot insight into the lives and manners of the people, and the illustrations and photographs add even more. It is a feast for the eyes and the mind. In addition to showing the fashions of the day, it also places them in cultural context. I would have enjoyed even more details and illustrations, but for the price it is a rich addition to other histories of costume.
