Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent My style preference is for the late 1930s but they do lap over into the early 1940s so this book is a wonderful reference for the style at the time. As this book is from Britain it clearly shows the styles during the years of WWII. Terrific book if you are interested in this era of vintage fashions.
