Description: One of the best books ever published on Romanian folk costume. This huge tome features hundreds of black & white and color photographs of Romanian folk costumes from every region in the country. The book is organized by region and features costumes that many other general books overlook. Includes photos of both complete costumes and individual elements, offering an in-depth exploration of each costume. While the book is primarily about costumes, there are also photos of some other woven textiles, such as ethnic rugs and runners. Exceptional photos of vests, peasant blouses, wool skirts, sashes, shirts, hats, shawls, jewelry, shoes, and much more. Scarce and highly recommended.
