Description: Scarce publication discussing the folk costumes on both sides of the border between Poland and Slovakia. While the book attempts to introduce the topic in a somewhat comprehensive nature, the main focus is on the folk dress of Podhale on the Polish side and the villages of Lendak and Zdiar on the Slovak side. Includes historical information about early forms of folk dress and examines how it developed during the 20th century. Illustrated with contemporary color photos and reproductions of historic black/white photos. Texts authored by folk dress specialists from the respective regions. An uncommon title and a unique cross-border approach to the topic.
