Costume in Context - The 1960s and 1970s

Posted by Vivian Vassar on 22nd Apr 2022

The coolest books come from ETG Book Cafe in Staten Island.  I've always enjoyed their fashion books and recently, I found "Costume in Context - The 1960s and 1970s" by Jennifer Ruby.  The author follows and defines fashion and costume by following a fictitious family through the years.  The drawings are in black and white and in color and show a range of styles from work clothing to country living, dressy to casual, maxi to mini, and even includes a punk page!

I got such a kick out of it.  I remember wearing some of the looks in my younger days.  It brought back good memories :)  Thanks Everet to passing it on to me.
