Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Fantastically detailed book from the Victoria and Albert Museum collection. For any costume historian of the Renaissance period, and anyone who is re-enacting Tudor or Elizabethan gentry or nobility, this will add another layer of understanding when you look at source materials.
