What were the first articles of clothing made of? When did humans start working with leather? What color were the shoes of the Romans? Though born of the basic need to protect ourselves from cold & dust, clothing styles soon became a showcase of inventiveness, an excuse to appear in public in the latest fashions. Celebrated for his richly detailed illustrations, author/artist Ventura traces graphically the evolution of clothing styles, fabrics, & uses throughout history, with eye-catching & humor-filled drawings of the worlds various & fascinating attire. An examination of peoples clothing allows us to go over the important stages of history.
