Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“What distinguishes this title is its 180 color illustrations, which depict in rich detail figures representing varied social classes of European (and later American) society from 1066 to 1990. A succinct glossary and a one-page introduction provide complementary text to the parade of the ‘great years of fashions’...a valuable and interesting research tool. Recommended.”—Library Journal.

Book News Annotation:

Have you ever wondered to which era the pointed, foot-long slippers, the "jellybag" head attire, or the cartwheel ruff belonged? Or the fabulously puffy pumpkin-shaped arrangements that hung about gentlemen's hips in the 16th & 17th centuries? (They are called "trunk hose".) Contains 180 color illustrations depicting fashionable costumes, body ornamentation and hairstyles dating from the 11th century to the present, with detailed descriptions of the fashions, which are thoroughly defined in the glossary. Distributed by Sterling Publishing.
