A History of Costume and Fashion

Aren't these the most beautiful, delicate illustrations? They are from a handmade book called "The History of Costume and Fashion", which was a diploma project of Tatyana Kartasheva.

Her website is mostly in Ukrainian, but I did manage to find out that these drawings are done in Koh-i-noor pencil and Faber Castell liners on Colorline paper.

Here are some shots of the drawings reproduced in the book. Apparently she only made one copy, which is a pity, as I'd love to have one, even if I can't read it! More views here.

  1. SPLENDID! What intricate detail... what a great talent.

    Looking forward to more of her work in the future.
