Review quote

'There is a real wealth of information here - and it couldn't be clearer to read.' 'It isn't often that I get excited about training manuals especially when they deal with subjects of which I have absolutely no hands-on experience. But Period Hairstyles for Studio Stage and Screen and its companion volume Period Make-up, both by Kit Spencer and both new from Methuen Drama, are lovely, heavy ring-bound books with lots of outstandingly helpful pictures.' The Stage - Education Blog 'This book should prove a boon to anyone - prfessional or amateur - who aspires to bring authenticity with the make up of this particular period.' Promp, Cambridge Theatre Group ' I would thoroughly recommend these books to enthusiastic amateurs or young people ' The Stage (June 2009)show more
