PW Selects The Fine Art of Fashion Illustration for Holiday Gift List

November 11, 2015
The Fine Art of Fashion Illustration was selected for the Publishers Weekly 2015 Illustrated Gift Books holiday gift list.

"The holidays are a time of indulgence, and that extends to the realm of art books, where a single volume can command a testing-menu price tag," wrote PW.

The Fine Art of Fashion Illustration, by Julian Robinson, with Gracie Calvey, celebrates 400 years of fashion illustration with 350 images, including photogravure, pochair, woodcuts and engravings. According to PW, the book proves "Robinson's point that fashion illustration, far too long overlooked by art and history academics, 'wordlessly carry within them so much information, both historical and cultural.'"

The book is published by Frances Lincoln.
