Reviews & Quotes
"An excellent resource... an enjoyable and useful starting point to understanding dress in the past with sufficient scope to open up the subject in a broad and thoughtful manner.'"
Cambridge Archaeological Journal (19.1, 2009)
"The natural market for this collection is the one it was created for: students of costume history and design, beginning their exposure to historic scholarship and as interested in the process as the finished product... a model for the presentation of focused, technical information to a general readership, combining scholarly rigor and careful methodology with an approachable style and respect for the nontechnical reader.'"
Heather Rose Jones
