Who were the cavaliers, and what elaborate hairstyles did they introduce? Did Puritans really wear only simple, unadorned black clothing? Tom Tierney answers these questions and more in this carefully researched and rendered coloring book on seventeenth-century apparel worn by the English, the American colonists, and other Europeans.
Forty-five illustrations reveal that cavaliers (those loyal to the royal cause during the English civil war) loved ribbons, bright colors, and fancy hats on heads of long, curly hair. Puritans preferred browns, grays, deep greens, and other dark colors but didn't always wear black. And — they liked white cuffs and collars! Other figures portrayed include farmers, soldiers, prosperous middle-class couples, and landed gentry.
Informative captions and descriptive notes accompany handsome, full-page drawings that will not only appeal to coloring book fans of all ages but will also be valued by costume historians and fashion designers.
