This is a well done book which shows illustrations of typical clothing of the ancient Greeks throughout several historical periods. The drawings are clear and accurate as are all of Tom Tierney's similar works. This was an invaluable aid to designing an historically accurate costume for my 6th grader's "Greek Festival".
High quality paper dolls. The historical dolls are a really wonderful way to help kids really visualize history I really enjoy this set because it includes male figures for the paper dolls (usually a girl only sphere)I have made permanent paper doll stands from railings available from places like Home Depot or Lowes). If you have access to a table saw you can cut a groove into the top of the rounded part of the railing. I have found that 2" to 2-1/2" in length is good. Stain & varnish if you like. These really help to keep the dolls standing up & makes actual play more fun for children.
A high quality publication with exceptional detail. Bought this as a gift for a friend who is an art teacher. She was absolutely thrilled. A must have for anyone with an interest in the dress of this time period.
We used paper dolls to make project on presentation board adding embellishments to each doll ex fabric stoles, jewelry, leather straps for sandals, etcGot rave reviews from teacher.
