The Survey of Historic Costume Coloring Book highlights Western dress from the ancient world to today through fashion silhouettes. By coloring line drawings that parallel chapters from the Survey of Historic Costume, 7th Edition textbook, students will learn to identify and retain specific details that make each historical period’s fashion unique. Each chapter also includes activities and prompts to promote further thinking and creativity, including tasks like drawing and making modern-day connections. Through these dynamic, hands-on exercises, students will develop an understanding of historic costume, increase awareness of world culture, and have fun through this interactive learning medium.
