    One thought on “20,000 Years of Fashion: The History of Costume and Personal Adornment”

    1. The content would be great if the title has been more precise: Fashion of Rich Europeans. With a brief execution at the beginning of ancient Middle Eastern fashions (so Boucher can gloss over the fact that Europeans were barbarians who had barely come up with Conan-level of clothes at the same time that the peoples of Northern Africa and the Middle East were inventing all the still in use basics of high style – strappy sandals, eye makeup, lipstick, wigs, perfume, shaving, hair gel, etc.) the [...]

    2. Do you ever find yourself thinking well reading a historical novel (ok romance) what did they wear, what type of style was in fashion during that period. This is the book that answers those questions. I find myself reaching for this book often. Not only does it give you the description of the clothes but the best part is that there are over 1200 illustrations. I happened to find this at the used bookstore for $5.00 and it’s been worth its weight in gold.

    3. This book is awesome! From my own personal research using archaeological sources, it's very well-researched, too.It would have been nice to see more pictures of costumes in pre-history, even if notations might have been needed in regards to accuracy.

    4. I fell in love with this giant book when I was about 13, and I love it still. The range of information and illustrations is terrific.

    5. I doubt I will ever finish not for at least two years. I sort of look through it and read a few pages at a time. It's my treasure book, my kindered spirit.

    6. Contains fantastic details that helps illustrate human progression through the ages via fashion trends.
