From the dawn of Islam through the end of the 20th century, the relationship between the West and the Near East has quietly been reflected in the visual culture of clothing. Offering context for this poorly understood form of expression, Charlotte Jirousek argues that dress reflects not simply the self but also a community's relation to a wider world through trade, colonization, religion, and technology. The 180 illustrations include rare vintage photos, images of extravagant clothing, and art by Albrecht Durer, Lucas Cranach, Jean Antoine Watteau, and John Singleton Copley.
