Reviews - What do customers think about Traditional Korean Costume?
Beautiful, detailed book Dec 18, 2007
This impressively-produced volume covers Korean headdresses; hair ornaments; accessories; shoes; jackets and vests; pants, skirts and socks; and coats. There is a general introduction to Korean costume as well as introductions to each chapter, author biographies, a glossary and a bibliography. Every item is described in a short paragraph and shown in a high-quality color photograph which is diagrammed with exact measurements. In many cases there are illustrations showing how the garment would have been worn. Even those who have no interest in the subject will be fascinated by the care and attention to detail evidenced on every page of this book. The only thing it is missing is photographs showing the garments worn on people. Highly recommended!
