Too often, cultural historians and costume scholars invoke fashion engravings as documentary evidence for the truth-claims they wish to set forth about the clothing of a particular era; yet as the authors and editors of this superb volume make clear, fashion prints themselves have no less a complex history, and no fewer rich interpretive possibilities, than do other forms of written or visual expression.
