We gave this book to our teen who loves art and the history of costumes — it is frequently used as both a reference book and as inspiration. Although it is not designed for actually crafting costumes to wear, it can be used for drawing or crafting models, and is is a rich resource for learning about culture through what we wear. It is richly illustrated and cross referenced with lots of attention to details including hairstyles, accessories, and shoes. For those who want to dive in to the history of costume in their destinations, this can be a perfect launching point, perhaps inspiring artwork or short stories related to your destinations.
