A jewel : High style

High style : masterworks from the Brooklyn museum costume collection at the Metropolitan museum of art

By Jan Glier Reeder 256 pages

I receive this book as a gift for christmas.Wow ! It's a delight for the eyes.When you open the book you saw a lot of pictures which give you an idea of what's coming next.Put it on your wish list.

What I like

This book is full of historicals pictures , in color of course.You have a short description and a date of the object.There is a section for doll and for what every women like : shoes.The main attraction is all the place is mostly for picture , so if you're looking for inspiration or need to see detail it's a good ressource.It's really a delight for the eyes there is no other way to describe it.

What I didn't like

Some gown are so amazing . It's too bad because some picture will show you only one view and not the traditionnal front , back and side.This really dissapointed me because it did not allow to see the entire thing and hide details you want to see.
