The Special Collections Department at the Cleveland Public Library has become the recipient of recent transfers of items that feature illustrations of costume from various countries. Many of the works contain plates that have examples of regional costume illustrated in pochoir, a French technique of stenceling. Others offer examples of theatrical ensemble used for performance or masque balls.
Works by artist E?mile Gallois include, Costumes Japonais et Indone?siens; Costumes de L'Union Fran,caise; and Le costume en France des Merovingiens a? Franc?oisier ; and also available is Domini e Maschere, by G. Palanti which features 16 illustrated plates.
To see these and other books on costume, visit the Special Collections Department on the 3rd Floor of Main Library.
