Series: Picture books for libraries
By Laura Cowan
Discover the extravagant fashions worn in the Middle Ages over a thousand years ago, from lavish Burgundian gowns and headdresses to bell-shaped gowns and hair braids worn in the Spanish courts. With contents and index pages for easy reference, plus internet links to specially selected websites with more information.
Laura studied literature at Cambridge and more literature at Trinity College Dublin. This means she’s read a lot of books, which helps when writing them. Before joining Usborne, she taught English in Barcelona for four years, as well as in Dublin and Cambridge. She now lives in East London with some plants and a lot of vintage clothes.
