From the Editor's Introduction: "The purpose of this volume is to highlight and discuss the collections that document, inspire, and inform the work of costume designers. Entitled Documenting: Costume Design, this volume is the second in a planned series published by Theatre Library Association which focuses on performance design documentation... This volume is intended for librarians, archivists, researchers, and designers to better understand the historical context of costume design for dance, theatre, and film. It also provides an introduction to extraordinary collections and the range of materials available for research. The topic is extensive in scope and therefore the volume is limited to Western performance traditions and collections maintained in the United States. Image collections and costume collections are inextricably linked to costume design research and several selected collections have been included."
