STYLE AND SATIRE: FASHION IN PRINT, 1777-1927. Catherine Flood and Sarah Grant. V&A Publishing, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Abrams, New York. 80 pp. with 47 ills. (44 col.). 25 x 21 cm. LC 2014-932325 ISBN 9781851778034 In English.
Publisher's description: From the sky-high coiffures of Marie Antoinette to Victorian hoop skirts, from the sheer gowns of Pride and Prejudice era to the flat-chested 1920s flapper, Style and Satire tells the story of European fashion and its most extreme trends through lavish fashion plates and the glorious satirical prints they inspired. Beautifully printed, hand-colored fashion plates first appeared in magazines and for sale individually in the late 18th century. At the same time (and often by the same artists), satirical prints gloried in the absurdities of fashion, presenting an alternative, often humorously exaggerated, vision of the fashionable ideal. Both forms were a product of the same print market, and both documented modern life. Lavishly illustrated, Style and Satire presents a witty and original history of fashion trends.
