Medieval Manner of Dress: Documents, Images and Surviving Examples of Northern Europe, Emphasizing Gotland in the Baltic Sea.
Publication Date: 2001
Priests, monks, burghers and peasants - how did they dress in the Nordic countries during the Middle Ages? What materials and colors were used? Which changes of fashion occurred?
Knowledge of the medieval manner of dress must be drawn from visual and written records - art, provincial statutes and court findings, supplemented by all too few examples of surviving textile material.
Else Marie Gutarp presents a compilation of the extensive, albeit widely-scattered material - an invaluable guide for workshops, theater groups, organisers of medieval festivals and interested readers in general.
The book also contains diagrammed cutting patterns for several simple medieval garments.
From book's back cover
When I was at the Gotland Fornsal during the Medieval week I purchase 3 extra copys of this book about Medieval Manner of Dress that I thought I woud give away to my blog readers:)
The book are in english and there are NO arms or armour in it at all, but good info about Medieval Manner of Dress, Images and Surviving Examples of Northern Europe, Emphasizing Gotland in the Baltic Sea...
