Using written records, paintings, figurines, and actual garments and fabrics when available, the authors have created a chronological record of Chinese dress and hair styles from ancient times to the 20th century. Dress of the upper classes, military, common people, and of both men and women are included. In addition to photographs of relevant historical artifacts, brightly colorful drawings of costumes are provided and give the book much of its visual interest. With its appealing graphics, award-winning book design, and readable text, suitable for both lay readers and students; such details as garment measurements make it useful to scholars and costume designers.
