About this title


The Handbook of Stage Costume is a comprehensive guide to designing, finding, and creating costumes for the stage. Straightforward and accessible, the book aims to give you the skills and the confidence to dress a variety of theater productions, from a full-scale musical to an abstract, improvised performance. It explains production meetings and the structure of a theatre company; working to a budget; the importance of costume to actor and audience; shopping, cutting, and making; costume for devised and physical theatre production; managing the wardrobe; and technical and dress rehearsals.

Shipping Terms:

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.
