Folio, green leatherette, g ilt lettering to spine. Heather Colyer Ross (b. March 7, 1936, Australia). "Few in the world are unacquainted with Arabian costume to some degree, butmisconceptions about its true nature are many. With the publication of The Art of Arahian Costume, this situation is now remedied. For the first time it is possible to see the brilliance of colour, variety of form and ingenu ity of decoration to be found in costume of the Arabian Peninsula. In this book, the influence of extensive trade, stretching back thousands of years,highlights the differences as well as the similarities to be found from re gion to region, without obscuring the unique qualities of garments from this area. Indeed Indeed the subject can rightly be described as an intricate patchwork, the components of which are scrupulously examined. Aided by 140 colour illustrations and over 50 line drawings, the reader is led through the fascinating story of traditional Arabian costume and how it was developed to suit the needs of the hardy Bedouin. The chapter on Regional Styles demonstrates how each area has developed specific characteristics. which may owe as much to the availibility of certain materials as to external influence from closeby. This book is not confined to costume alone, but explores the subject of beauty culture, jewellery and related arts and crafts. Extensive appendices reveal the importance of embroidery and advise on how to care for these magnificent garments. As a welcome bonus there is a comprehensive Glossary of Arabic Words and List of Technical Terms.compiled by the author, with the assistance of distinguished linguists, in both Arabic and English. With development burgeoning in the Arabian Peninsula, it is timely the The Art of Arabian Costume records the splendour of rapidly vanishing traditional costume, and will provide an invaluable source of inspiration to the fashion conscious of the world." - from the dj.
