MEDIA REVIEWS

'What mourning garb has been, and not only for widows but for widowers too, and for children and grandchildren and siblings and servants and subjects, is set out in engrossing historical detail in Lou Taylor's suvery of Mourning Dress, a book at once scholarly and delightful.' - Country Life

'The time is ripe for Lou Taylor's fascinating and discerning study of a subject now in the realm of history.' - Daily Telegraph

'A most valuable addition to the available literature on the history of costume and textiles. It provides the fullest account of its subject, and benefits greatly from the author's treatment of costume as a facet of social history and her wide choice of comparisons from different cultures.' - Journal of Textile History
