Auguste Racinet, The Costume History

This year for my birthday I'm getting myself a few beautiful books to add to my collection of art books. I went to one of my favorite websites Taschen Books to find something for myself. That's where I saw The Costume History by Auguste Racinet. I was drawn to it because of the detailed illustrations of fashion and costumes from the past centuries. I'm not really so much into fashion, but I do find it rather interesting, especially the more avant-garde things that some designers are doing these days.
