This book is exactly what it claims to be - a pictorial archive. For descriptions or details, you will need to refer to other sources for information re: materials, construction, and history.

For those who already have a working knowledge of this 100 years in fashion, this book is a candy store of visual tidbits. Remember: very few fashion illustrations of the nineteenth century were colored; hand-coloring was a labor-intensive process reserved for high-end publications with limited runs.

Over 2,000 fashion motifs and designs are included ~ from such periodicals as Harper's Bazaar, London Illustrated News, La mode Illustrée, The Delineator, and Life, as well as fashion catalogs, Perfect for your art, page and card making, collage, decoupage. Artists and illustrators wishing to add a touch of nostalgia to assorted print projects will find this comprehensive collection of vintage fashion cuts and ideal resource. There are no arrows pointing the way. But the results will be fantastic for you, your art.

This is not my photograph - I have used a photograph from another source since, as this book does not appear to have ever been opened, to open the book to scan the pages for you would and risk "breaking" the book's spine.

It's really quite perfect - no tears, creases, folds, or marks. I don't think the book has ever been opened. Hundreds upon hundreds of gorgeous, crisp black and white illustrations.

I'll send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class Mail.
