192 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). "The immensely rich diversity of folk costume throughout the world is brought together in a unique and superbly illustrated volume. (It) introduces the reader to contemporary costume from every corner of the globe, country by country, region by region. The book explores a succession of styles and fashions, which cover everything from the dashing tartan ensembles of the Scottish Highlands to the softly rustling grass skirts of the Pacific Islands. It shows the many-hued regional splendors of the Indian sari, the beautiful ceremonial robes of the North American Indian, the colorful togas of the African Berbers and the exquisitely embroidered clothes of the hill tribes that live in Southeast Asia. (It) discusses how social history, climate, dictates of religion and other factors have affected how people dress and how their costumes have been adapted over the years. (This) is an essential reference book on folk costume for both the professional and the interested amateur. Never before has such a detailed text been combined with informative maps and about 500 glorious full-color photographs in one book." Minor wrinkling at top of spine, minor edge wear, one tiny corner bump. Dust jacket has light rubbing - faint rub lines on rear panel, very light edge wrinkling with minor wear, wrinkling at top of spine with tiny tears.
