Reader's note

Add a dash of yellow to your bookshelf with this unique and unusual 1968 edition of The Pictorial Encyclopaedia of Fashion by Ludmila Kybalova. We are apt to forget how recent the development of fashion is. Wars and conquests brought knowledge of other peoples. The wall paintings in Egyptian temples show clearly that their creators were aware that the clothes they themselves wore were not the same as those worn by Semite captives. The Ancient Greeks knew that the .barbarians' on their borders wore trousers, which they did not themselves. Fashion, in our sense, can be seen emerging in the last half of the 14th century. Beginning in the luxurious Court of France and Burgundy at that time, it soon spread in the West. Learn more of this history in this wonderfully illustrated edition!
