Visual History of Costume Summary

Visual History of Costume: Sixteenth Century by Jane Ashelford

This forms part of a series designed for those who need reference material on the history of dress, using a series of illustrations as the central part of each book thus giving the reader an idea of what was worn and how. The clothes are described, explained, interpreted and arranged in date order. The reader may need to know whether a certain style was fashionable or unfashionable at a certain time, ususal or unusual - such information is clearly and consistently laid out. An introduction outlines the broad developments of dress in the centruy, and a glossary explains the many technical terms. The text should be of use to students, designers and collectors. The author took a postgraduate degree in the History of Dress at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London and has written several articles and one previous book on the subject. She lectures on dress to art students.
