Press reviews

“Much more than just a sticker book - enjoy putting the stickers in place and afterwards you will have an excellent reference guide to Edwardian fashion and culture.”
“There is a lot of historical information included in the book as well as some beautiful illustrations. It is a really fun way to learn about the Edwardian age.”
“With Downton Abbey popularising fashion from this era again, this is a great book for primary school children, as well as fun for younger children (and their parents!).”
“The colourful illustrations perfectly capture the elegant style of the period and make it interesting and accessible to children... Incorporating a hands-on approach using stickers and a section to decorate your own clothes is a great way to invite children to learn whilst they play. ”
