Format: Hardcover
A great book that gives a thorough explanation of the history of Royal Ascot through images and text. Gorgeous quality images of all aspects of fashion, as a milliner I would have loved more hats but the overall is a beautiful coffee table book

I am so pleased with this book. It is lavishly illustrated and beautifully written. I expect I will be displaying it long after I have finished reading it. I so wish I could have had it signed by James Sherwood. He defined fashion at Ascot with his unerring sense of style and caustic wit.

Having just started making hats, this book is so inspirational. Written by a thoroughbred of style himself, this is a great coffee table book.
