Fashion history at your fingertips.

Clothing in the ancient world

Dover Publications used to be one of our favorite sources “back in the day.”  The Dover catalog offered a wealth of useful and fun books as well as workbooks.  Dover was one of the few places you could purchase books full of copyright free visuals and borders and more.  So you might imagine how exciting that was for us in the 1970s, but who is giving away their age?

Today Dover Publications is alive and well and web available.  We looked over a list of fashion and costume history books and some of the books and prices are just fabulous.  These types of books make such a great start to your fashion library.  You can be influenced by gorgeous details from fashion through the ages.

Here is a link to the fashion and costume list of books available. 

One book looked so tempting.  Illustrated Encyclopedia of World Costume – “This authoritative resource by Doreen Yarwood covers the entire world with a comprehensive history of clothing and accessories that ranges from ancient to modern times. More than 2,000 illustrations accompany 650-plus entries.”

  1. This really is obtaining a bit more very subjective, but I a lot like the Microsoft zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, offers much more flair, plus some cool functions like ‘Mixview’ that allow you to rapidly observe related photos, tunes, or other users associated with what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will focus on that product, and the other set of “neighbors” can come into look at, allowing you to get around about exploring through similar artists, songs, or customers. Talking about users, the actual Microsoft zune “Social” can also be great fun, letting you find other people along with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then may pay attention to the playlist produced according to a combination of the items all your buddies are listening to, also is pleasant. Those concerned with privacy is going to be happy to understand you can prevent the public from seeing your individual listening habits if you so choose.
