Editorial Reviews


"Dress history is a field rightly gaining increasing recognition and an up-to-date book on Byzantine dress is certainly overdue...Ball's book begins the process of changing the situation. She argues convincingly that the Byzantines were concerned with fashion and used it in a significant and nuanced way." —Speculum
"This book is a welcome addition to the history of Byzantine dress.... a useful introduction to the subject; it deals with the problems of the evidence and is willing to recognise the problems of definition of garments over time." —Medieval Clothing and Textiles
"This book is a welcome addition to the history of Byzantine dress. It presents a concise coverage of the Middle Byzantine period (eighth to twelfth centuries) using paintings (both frescoes and illustrated manuscripts) as its main evidence." - Recent Books of Interest

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed this book very much. The only criticism I have is I wish it had a bunch of color plates in it so we can SEE more of what is described. But the descriptions are fantastic and highly useful. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is a must-have book for anyone interested in secular clothing in the middle Byzantine period.
