100 Years of Fashion Illustration
100 Years of Fashion Illustration by Cally Blackman offers up over 400 images of fashion as a comprehensive survey from the past century. Not only a collection of illustrations, but a traipse through the history of fashion as well, this book is easy on the eye and makes everything old seem new again, reminding us of the value of traditional techniques and perspectives. The glamour of fashion has always been very much present, but so has a combination of its levity, simplicity and elegance.
