About the Author
At the age of 17 Mathew Gnagy entered the tailoring trade as an apprentice in a suit shop. His interest in historical clothing led him to study tailoring throughout the ages. By the age of 25 he had designed stage productions, numerous individual costumes for private clients and started his own costume business. In 2007, he moved to New York City and started working in the professional costume industry as well as fashion and quickly found his way to Broadway, TV and fashion runways. His first title: Knitting Off the Axis, was released in 2011 by Interweave press. The Modern Maker is his second book. He currently resides in New York City. He works regularly as a tailor for both Screen and Stage and teaches fashion at Parsons University of Fashion Design.

However, it's print quality and layout are not quite A-materials. More of a B+.
I know how difficult it can be to self publish, but one should be extra aware of how unfairly a self published author must be the height of perfection. The choices of photos too sometimes don't really demonstrate the step he is describing.
I was also hoping for more. Bravo To Gnagy. I'm sorry Amazon won't let me give him an extra half star: this is really a 4.5! book. If you care about the clothing of the period, you need this book.
