Description: Impressive book about traditional men’s leather belts from Bavaria and Tirol. These belts have a long history in the region and were also worn in neighboring parts of Italy and Bohemia. The book documents various styles of men’s belts including ones decorated with tin nails and feather quill embroidery. Each belt is a work of art on its own and by bringing together so many in one place the book offers the option for comparison and study of these impressive elements of regional dress.
