I always enjoy looking at Tom Tierney's interpretation of costumes of different eras. He gets all the lines right, finding the elements of a time period and rendering the dolls and costumes in brilliant colors. I frequently use his books for reference when making doll costumes.

Format: Paperback
The Renaissance, as we all learned in high school, began in Italy, where flourishing trade and the presence of the central seat of power of the then-only Christian church provided money and educated, leisured people who could investigate the glories of the past on a scale not dreamed of before. But rather than copying the clothing styles of the ancients whose accomplishments they were rediscovering, they continued to develop the often-extreme ones of the preceding era (as shown in Tierney's Gothic Costumes Paper Dolls (Dover Paper Dolls). Tierney shows us the kind of clothing that would be worn by members of a wealthy merchant-prince family of the later 15th century (1450-1500). Puffed and slashed garments, particolored tights and shockingly short men's tunics, hair- and headdresses that ranged from the simple to the grotesque, are all seen here in full color, with the useful liner notes typical of the series.
