According to Spanish tradition, the bullfighter should never wear his costume outside the bullring. Published for the first time, the greatest stars of the Corrida, resplendent in their elaborately embroidered costumes, are brought to readers in a series of stunning studio portraits. Matadors dressed in gold and banderilleros wearing silver re-enact the dramatic gestures and intricate choreography of their profession, displaying the most artistic, appealing aspects of the bullfight as seen today in Spain, France and South America. With its informative text and luxurious full-page color photographs by international photographer Peter Muller, Oro Plata is the perfect showcase for both the colorful history and tradition of these costumes, and for the living legends of the men who wear them.
