The age of Shakespeare seems filled with larger than life characters. They were vulgar, boisterous and fiercely individual and they put up with showy discomfort in order to shine the brightest among the place seekers at courts throughout Europe. This book describes their clothes and combines historical accuracy with fictional journals of three fashionable people who were specially interested in what they wore. Special days in their lives are illustrated with pull-up scenes, giving a lively insight into the extravagant costume of the period.
This is Book 1 in the History and Costume Series. See all History and Costume books here.
