I saw this book sitting on the adult new book shelf and immediately picked it up. I’m not artistically inclined, but I love looking at fashion drawings, especially if they are period dresses. If you have an artistic flair, How to Draw and Paint Fashion and Costume Design will give you step by step instructions for fashion styles from the 1920′s through the 1960s, and even some period costume ideas. This book could easily fit into the young adult collection, by why not explore the adult shelves as well? Of course, it’s checked out now, but put yourself on hold and you’re sure to get it soon after we open in our temporary space at 700 New Hampshire.
