Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"At present, I know of no other books that address this important aspect of costume design. I am particularly pleased that the author addresses CHARACTER so heavily in her presentation of material. This is, after all, what plays are about."—Madeline Ann Kozlowski, Emmy Award winning Costume Designer and Professor of Costume Design

"Not only are there body types, movement and mediums. It covers fabrics and works in a way my students can understand as well as use. The artwork is lush! A must for any design teacher."—Barbara Sack, Professor of Costume Design
