Wow, you noticed that URL in the book!

If you came here because you found our URL in The Complete Costume Dictionary, thank you for buying the book or checking it out of the library or “borrowing it” from a friend when they weren’t looking! We are developing a website to provide you with some bonus material and with a way to give us feedback to make future editions better. We plan on making those postage stamp sized illustrations available in large format and digital form to those who buy the book. We’re counting on the expertise of our smart and knowledgeable customers and clients to help make us better at what we do, whatever that is. So check this site again in a few weeks and see what’s new. We look forward to getting to know each other and making future editions even better.
