Reviews - What do customers think about Oro Plata: Embroidered Costumes Of The Bullfight?
Magnifico Dec 19, 2001
One of the most beautiful books I have ever seen on this passionate and dramatic ballet sans blood and bulls. Rich, gorgeous photos show the intricacies and details of the costumes and provide a view most people are unaware of. Highly recommended. Stunning!
You've gotta get this!!! May 21, 2001
This book is breathtakingly beautiful. It is exceedingly difficult to find any information on the bullfighter's costume. This book doesn't just tell about the work that goes into the design and construction like most other references on the shelf. The photos are so rich in detail and color that just to study one picture leaves one as satisfied as if having read an entire novel on the art. I have spent countless hours just gaping in awe at the remarkable craftsmanship of these objets d'arte. For anyone who has the least bit of appreciation for the clothes we create and the traditions we honor I promise, this book will not only inspire but impassion. As a student of couture, I'd have to say it's one of the best books you'll ever find. Totally worth the price!!!
