Format: Hardcover
Though a bit expensive, this book is well worth the money! We sell vintage clothing and this has been an invaluable resource guide. I return to it time and time again. Packed with beautiful color photos...descriptions...glossary...great period millinery ads. A must for the collector or dealer in vintage clothing!

This book is packed full of photographs and is very informative,but if mannequins are going to be used to exhibit the garments, as is often the case, then time has to be taken to pin them in to make sure they look good on. Some of the garments photographed are just hanging loosely and the overall photography of this book (focus and lighting) has a dull feel to it. A bit of a shame because the content is wonderful.

I loved seeing the fashions but the photo quality is poor. Huge shadows on some clothes and blurry edges on black. Then again it was published in 97 so digital cameras were not common place then. The price guide as most are is ridiculous.
