Anyone interested in any aspect of fashion, portraiture, period painting, portraiture or other historical area of the period would find delight, I am sure, in this publication. Get a copy - quick!
Erm... Now that I've calmed down a bit. I have to say that this book has had the same effect on me that really well illustrated cookery books have on two friends of mine (Hi Bob/Madeleine!). They call it "gastro-porn", which says it all really...
Nice photos with lots of close-ups (buttons, embroidery, stitching and such).. The cover shot is just the beginning... I think I need a cup of tea & a sit-down ;-)
The illustrations are sumptuous, and as I went to the exhibition prior to reading this book, I want to go again now that I have read the book.
The close up illustrations are sufficiently detailed to allow the reader to attempt a historical reconstruction of the garments shown. This is more than a catalogue, it is one of the best books ever written on Historical Fashion.
