Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193522395X, Paperback)Jim Howard, one of the greatest fashion illustrators of all-time, continues his decade-by-decade tribute to Couture fashion. His newest book for Paper Studio Press addresses the 1910s, a period when women in hobble skirts inched towards comfort, abandoned corsets and donned extravagant creations of silk, satin and velvet, lavishly trimmed with lace and fur. Two pretty paper dolls wear marvelous outfits by top designers of the period including Chanel, Jeanne Lanvin, Paul Poiret, Fortuny, Paquin and Erte. The new book in the series is a must-have for serious fashion history buffs and collectors who appreciate Jim Howard's monumental talent that turns each page into framable works of art.
