Lots of fun for the costume historian, and inspiring for any home sewer, this book shows velvets from about 1450 C.E. to the present and how they were used in fashion and interior decoration. There's also a nice section at the end on the techniques of weaving and dyeing. While the content is great, I do have some complaints about the quality of the book: the captions needed to be proofread, as there are a lot of misspellings and typos; and some of the color reproductions are just muddy enough that one cannot see clearly the details of the fashions. But I don't know of any other book like this one, so it gets my recommendation for costumers and fashion historians.

Considering the specialization of the subject, it is well done. I would have liked more emphasis on the history of velvet, though. However, I think it is a good addition to the fiber enthusiast's collection.
