Summary
"This absorbing survey of medieval clothing makes an important and unique contribution to our understanding of the cultural and social conditions of western Europe in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Drawing on paintings and sculpture, documents and literature, surviving clothing, textiles, jewellery and armour, Francoise Piponnier and Perrine Mane show that garments and accessories of the Middle Ages reveal much about life and society of the time. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
