A Fashion Textbook?!?

June 18, 2009

When I was little I wanted to be a historian, so it is no wonder that I’ve gone hardcore and am currently reading Costume and Fashion: A Concise History. It is a small softcover “text”-ish book that starts off in ancient times and moves right on into modern day in under 300 pages with lots of pretty pictures. My kind of read!

So anyways, this book. It’s pretty darn good!! I’m liking learning about the first fabrics invented by man etc. Some tribes/cultures/whatevers would take bark from trees,pulp it and treat it so that it would become a thick mat sort of fabric. I bet it would have been scratchy!
