beautiful set!

by on Apr 4, 2007

This is the most beautifully illustrated book available on the history of fashion. I have looked at many, but none are so thorough and definitive for the 18th to the 20th centuries. The publisher lists the book at 49.00 (unbelievable for what you get!) but it is currently unavailable. I believe there is to be a reprint in the future, but a date is not currently set. (It has been reprinted several times since I first became aware of it -- After almost losing hope, I was finally able to get a copy of this latest edition. It seems to sell out quite regularly. Just be persistent and you will find a copy!) The set consists of two large volumes, the first covers the 18th and 19th centuries, and the second is devoted to the 20th century. These two tomes are in a sturdy outer case. The illustrations are clear and detailed, making it easy to examine the construction used for the garments, and also are displayed so one can see the overall beauty of the craftsmanship. They are truly works of art! Text is at a minimum; the books consist mainly of these beautiful illustrations.
