This book is gorgeous.
By: Yanny Cw

Great pictures of the accessories, hair ornaments, hats, jewelry for men and women, collars and vests, purses, fans and of course shoes. The collected items are also interspersed with old photos of men women and royalty wearing and using the items. A wonderful addition to your library of Asian history and costume.
