Medieval Costume, Armour and Weapons Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Accompanied by a scrupulously researched and well-documented text, over 400 royalty-free illustrations trace the evolution of clothing styles, armor, and weapons during the medieval period in Central Europe — from simple tunics and robes of peasants to the battle equipment and armor of warriors and the fur-lined cloaks and brocaded garments of the aristocracy.

Synopsis:

Over 400 illustrations in this superb archive trace the evolution of clothing styles, armor, and weapons during the medieval period in Central Europe. Drawing on a wealth of authentic primary sources, many unpublished in the West, including written accounts, contemporary paintings and sculpture, and the remains of textiles and other relics found in tombs, the authors document a profusion of fashions and arms.

These range from the simple tunics and robes of peasants, blacksmiths, gardeners, shoemakers, fishermen, and other common laborers, to the battle equipment and armor of warriors and the fur-lined cloaks and brocaded garments of the aristocracy. Accompanied by a scrupulously researched and well-documented text, these copyright-free illustrations not only offer general readers an intriguing and authentic insight into a past age but also provide artists, historians, and theater and film workers with a highly accurate source of reference material.
