Published in conjunction with the December 2001 exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this volume presents many of the amazing and diverse transformations endured by the body related to fashion over time and across cultures. In each of the five chapters, Koda (curator of The Costume Institute at the museum) examines a particular zone of the body in detail, and provides a chronological outline and explanatory text concerning the transformations that have characterized each zone. The book contains 225-plus color photographs and reproductions of armor, paintings, and period prints and caricatures. Oversize: 9.5x12show more
