Description: A monumental work about the traditional folk costumes of the Krakow region of Poland. Expertly researched and presented by two curators from the Krakow Ethnography Museum with a couple articles by other contributors. This book fills an important gap in Polish folk costume research as it presents numerous details of Krakow folk dress and the its various stages of development over the past several centuries. Earlier publications have not focused on a holistic approach to the Krakow region and frequently overlooked important aspects addressed in this volume. Beautifully illustrated using archival photographs, images of museum collections, and contemporary photos of folk dress as it exists today. A welcome addition to Polish folk dress reference literature and to your library.
