Series: Picture books for libraries
By Ruth Brocklehurst
Journey through fashion history in this lavishly illustrated picture book, from Romans draped in togas to Elizabethans in lace ruffs. Fashions of the past are brought to life with detailed facts, photographs and illustrations. With contents and index pages for easy reference, plus internet links to specially selected websites with more information.
When she wasn’t out riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth Brocklehurst spent much of her childhood reading – especially historical novels and whodunits. Since joining Usborne in 2000, she has written and edited countless books on everything from craft activities and history, to creative writing, space exploration and dinosaurs. If she could go back in time she’d like to meet Mary Queen of Scots.
