I'm starting to think it's me. Again I cannot look at the amazing clothing -- which I really really want to do -- because the drawings of the people wearing them are just too... too.. just not-quite-there. Maybe that's it, they are so almost there. But they look like the came from Planet Clip Art. On their way to a Dick and Jane reader.

sigh. I want to love this book.
This is not a definitive work, but it is a good overview both of Europe and the Middle East, as well as Central and South America. COlored drawings throughout.
