Gr 5 Up-These titles allow readers to put fashion and designers into the context of history and the social mores of their times. Exceptional graphic design and the use of authentic primary documents such as magazine covers and layouts, photos of famous people, and original design sketches enhance the presentations. All three books are written in a lively style that clearly explains the relationship between function, media, and fashion. One example is how the automobile prompted the popularity of motoring garb such as dusters, goggles, and veiled hats. Media influence is evidenced by the gangster suits of the `30s and the homespun Hollywood glamour of the `40s. Each volume includes a spread on "The Technology of Fashion." Time lines include "Fashion," "World Events," "Technology," "Famous People," and "Art & Media." Comparable to John Peacock's 20th Century Fashion (1993) and "Fashion Sourcebooks" series (all Thames & Hudson), these newer titles will appeal to younger students for research projects and leisure reading.-Betsy Barnett, Eads School District, CO
