    This review is from: Antique Trader Vintage Clothing Price Guide (Paperback)

    This is a great reference, as well as a fun book to read. There is a large range of eras, the pictures are beautiful, each item described well. I know prices are always relative, but it really does have a wide variety of items shown in each section, which can really “train your eye” if you are just starting out collecting. I will be able to use it to find some good descriptive terms, and I saw several items that we have in our collections pictured! For someone who is fairly new to seeing vintage clothing as collectible and fascinating, I can’t wait to pick it up again! As a note, if you are looking for a verbose account of the history of fashion, or the impact of society, etc. this is not the book you are looking for. I love it for good examples of descriptions, and for the beautiful pictures and reference points.
