Looking to Spend that Holiday Cash?
Well do I have a recommendation for you! Fashion from the Kyoto Costume Institute is eye candy for any 18th-20th century fashion lover. Wait no, it's a necessity! I don't really pay attention to the second book (20th century fashion) but the first is about 300 pages packed with fabulous photos of clothing on display from the 18th century to Victorian period. It makes you want to book a flight to Tokyo to see the amazing displays for yourself. You may have seen images from Fashion here or on other blogs and now they can be in your library gaze upon whenever you please. Amazon and Amazon UK has this hardcover duo book set on sale for 35% off. If you can't get enough 18th century or Regency fashion I would highly recommend taking advantage of this sale (and super saver free shipping!). Considering I almost bought these for $50 at The Met and would of had to drag all 10 pounds around, Amazon's discounts and shipping are worthwhile!
