Over 1,000 years of Chinese fashions for men and women are spotlighted in this exquisitely rendered coloring book — from a strapless high-waisted dress with a transparent outer robe worn during the Tang dynasty (a.d. 618-907) to an elegant, knee-length sheath trimmed with a floral applique (late Republic). 43 full-page black-and-white illustrations.
