Description: Scarce book about the folk costumes of the Czech Republic – one of the fundamental reference works on Czech folk dress. The book provides an introduction to regional folk dress and the cultural background, then explains various types of peasant dress (dress for work, festive dress, holiday/wedding dress, and children’s dress).

Each of these chapters is broken down by more specific region such Melnicko, Hana, Tesinko, Hornacko, Kyjov, etc. There is also a list of books on costumes, a glossary of Czech terms, and a helpful index. An excellent work devoted to the costumes of the Czech Rep & Moravia. Hundreds of photos, illustrations, diagrams, maps, reproductions of paintings, and much more. At least one image per page, often two or three including some full-page images.
