If so, what do you think of it?  It's not like I NEED yet
another clothing/fashion book, but one can never be too
skinny, too rich, or have too many books....

Yes.  Iz totally fabulous!

Iz coffee table book: size and weight of coffee table, just needs legs!

Acres of beautiful close-ups in perfect photograhy, and enough text to
explain the details without bogging you down.  Los Angelese has taken
several leaves out of the V&A's book production manual.  You get the
same quality of photography, but not quite so much scholarly text.  I
find that for my purposes (creating accurate historic dress) it's a
useful addition to the library alongside the V&A tomes, not least
because it gives alternative examples from those available at the V&A or
in the Kyoto Institute.

Ok, thanks, I'm going to add it to my collection.  I don't
do historically accurate costumes, but I LOVE detailed
pictures of those clothes.  I have the Kyoto Institute book,
love it, too.

mah and Washington Co. libraries own it, as does Reed
College, Univ. of Portland, Linfield and PNWCA if you want to see it in
person without actually owning it. <g>

Good stuff.  A friend who saw the exhibit was really delighted.

Did you see the earlier title in the LACMA costume collection,
Breaking the Mode?  Portland State, MHCC and OSU own that one.

Takeda also did that gorgeous book on Japanese fishing coats.

Thanks, I think I'll add it to my collection.  There are a
couple of other items in my amazon.com shopping cart, this
will bring the total up to qualify for free shipping.  ;-}

Hmmm, not really on my must have list, and a little rich for
my taste.  However, if I win the lottery...

Hey!!!  I thought that was **MY** job!!!!   LOL!!!!!!   Here, I'll help.....
What's one more book?  You can make room on the bookshelf.  And Amazon has a
pretty easy return policy if you don't like it. (I like to help....)

If it makes you feel any better, I think she's feeding mine too.  I may have
to see about the book above.  ;)

And when it comes to advice on feeding, I trust Kay implicitly.  She sent me
to a lovely little Vietnamese restaurant some time back when I was in IA for
a week.  If Kay says "eat here it's good,"  I'm putting my shoes on and
heading for the door.  She is a wise and wonderful enabler our Kay.  Isn't
that why we all treasure her??  :)

Oh, that looks GOOOD! I want one, too! No, seriously: If you've got the
money, go get it. As we say in our family: it doesn't eat bread and won't go
mouldy (provided it's kept properly, of course ;->).

U. - on a strict buying-diet, if you know what I mean.

I may have to re-enforce the book shelf.  I can't seem to
resist coffee-table sized books with lots of color
illustrations of historical clothing...
