Renaissance World

I have this amazing book called "The clothing of the renaissance world." Which is actually Cesare Vecellio's "Habiti Antichi et Moderni." Anyway, it first came out in 1590 and is full of every type of dress that everyone in the whole world wore. I love it. It's like a roadmap of people and it's a real joy to transfer some of the clothing to my army of unreal people. This is the same drawing as yesterday which I have put through the wringer a bit.
The book is also useful for standing on to reach the top shelf of the bookcase...I would add a photo of the bookcase but you might think me frightfully untidy.
