Here is another feast of ideas and practical information from the author of Costumes for the Stage for anyone who needs to dress a drama production on a tight budget or by the simplest means. Sheila Jackson's first book has been in constant demand for over a decade. Now, in addition to developing some of her earlier ideas in areas such as historical cosutme and fabrics, she covers exciting new ground with sections on animal and bird costumes, musical and dance, ethnic costume, headdresses and accessories, plus advice on design and how to manage a costume plan, a section especially for schools, and another dealing with costume for video. Over seventy-five pages of her own lively line drawings, diagrams and patterns illustrate the text throughout.
