"At present, I know of no other books that address this important aspect of costume design. I am particularly pleased that the author addresses CHARACTER so heavily in her presentation of material. This is, after all, what plays are about."--Madeline Ann Kozlowski, Emmy Award winning Costume Designer and Professor of Costume Design

"Not only are there body types, movement and mediums. It covers fabrics and works in a way my students can understand as well as use. The artwork is lush! A must for any design teacher."--Barbara Sack, Professor of Costume Design
