Description

Drawing on images from temples, wall paintings, pottery, and other artifacts, artist Tom Tierney has created a magnificent ready-to-color panorama of authentic clothing styles worn by the people of ancient Egypt. Forty-five full-page illustrations depict clothing styles for the highest and lowest members of Egyptian society, including a fashionable sheath worn by an Egyptian princess, a sheer kilt and red crown worn by a king of the Old Kingdom, a pleated skirt for an exotic dancer, a ceremonial robe of leopard skin for Queen Hatshepsut, simply draped gowns for court musicians, a variety of intricately styled wigs, lavish headgear for royal figures, and much more. Accompanied by accurate representations of period accessories (weapons, fans, symbols of office, musical instruments, etc.), these handsome illustrations are sure to delight coloring book enthusiasts, students of costume design, and fashion historians.show more
