Reserve Ask us a question

Superb period guide to commercial display for gentlemen's outfitters, the first section giving hints on the folding, draping and display of fabrics and their use in overall display work, with guidelines on the blocking out of a window and the use of show-cards and fashion plates. The section of examples includes photographs of actual displays in situ at such as Austin Reed in Regent Street, Harrod's in Brompton Road and Knightsbridge, Sulka in Bond Street, Hawke's in Savile Row, and Moss Bros. on Covent Garden. An acceptable copy of this unusual, practical guide, which is uncommon: two copies only on Library Hub - BL and Southampton; WorldCat adds two more - National Library of New Zealand and University of Chicago.
