* R. Turner Wilcox is the absolute queen when it comes to books on costume, and I'm listing all seven of her books because they frankly are the best resources out there, though many are extremely rare and often expensive. Her line drawings are incredibly helpful and clear, and her material is pain-stakingly and lovingly researched. She wrote in the 1950s through 1960s, so don't expect fashion later than then to be discussed. - Addendum, 6-30-08, Wilcox's books are in the midst of being re-released in paperback! The last two volumes to be redone (Headress and Shoes) are scheduled for November 2008, according to Amazon.com.
