Costume : 1066 to the Present (ISBN10: 0500286027; ISBN13: 9780500286029)

ISBN10: 0500286027

Summary: Here is an expanded and updated edition of John Peacock's unrivaled collection of drawings ranging over ten centuries of English historical costume. More than a thousand illustrations, based on surviving garments and contemporary paintings and photographs, demonstrate the astonishing changes in men's and women's clothing over the centuries--from the simple tunics and gowns of the eleventh century to the petticoat breeches and ostrich-plumed hats of Charles II's reign to
the casual T-shirts and shorts of our day.

The book is divided into the reigns of the British monarchs, and the costumes have been chosen to reflect analogous developments in the United States and Europe. Clear and detailed drawings, plus notes that pinpoint specific features such as fabric, decoration, accessories, and cut, make each costume immediately comprehensible.This new edition includes additional pages of illustrations covering clothing design from 1994 to the present day.
