A treasury of ethnic dress, this book ranges from the Amish of Pennsylvania to the Zulu of South Africa. Alphabetical entries cover more than 150 countries and regions, each represented by six or more illustrations. The survey covers not only all countries in which native dress is still worn but also those in which traditional garb appears only on festive occasions.
Six hundred drawings by the author include images of men, women, and children and show details of characteristic decorative motifs and accessories. Captions on facing pages describe the costumes and their associated traditions. A valuable resource for designers, teachers, students, and researchers, this volume will fascinate everyone with an interest in the customs, designs, fabrics, and colors of international dress.
