    1. John Peacock Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Fashion Since 1900: The Complete Sourcebook book, this is one of the most wanted John Peacock author readers around the world.

    2. Anyone interested in fashion history, costume-making, fashion design, period filmmaking, or just the average dressmaker / sewer who's interested in vintage style will like this book. It would be a good reference for a costume designer for theater or film. Full of color, detailed line-drawings of women's fashion - right down to their undergarments, accessories, hairstyles + makeup - from 1900 to 2000. There isn't much text, just lists of what the drawings represent if you don't know terminology. [...]

    3. Very inspiring, however, I wished the summaries were found on the adjacent page instead of at the end of each decade. Also, the book would be way more useful if real pictures of people actually wearing the styles or even actual magazine/newspaper ads of the styles were presented (so one can analyze fit on a real person) instead of these ugly illustrations (which lacked head-to-neck-to-arm-to-leg proportionality and would have received an "F" in my fashion illustration class). Putting the illustr [...]

    4. I can't figure out why I can't look away from these models' faces. I mean, I want to look away -- I want to look at the clothing! But each and every person is drawn with the same weirdly elongated neck, the same haunted far-away eyes, and eeks, then there's those mannequin pinky-out fingers. Arg! They look so 2-D. Okay, so they are 2-D. sigh. I need a book just like this one, that isn't this one.

    5. Another great book full of fashion inspiration. This book includes drawn images of women's fashion from the 1900s to present. It shows what women wore for certain social events as well as undergarments and accessories. I found it interesting to see how much fashion has changed. I read this book for fashion inspiration for my artwork and dolls.

    6. If you're at all interested in costume or fashion, take a peek at the new edition of John Peacock's 20th-century style sourcebook. As the name suggests, it leans more towards fashion (what the ideal woman wore) rather than costume (what women actually did/do wear), but it's still fascinating to see the changing styles from year to year and from decade to decade.

    7. It was amusing because I had trouble telling the difference between "relaxing" and "nightgowns". And the clothing I was most attracted to wearing were from the '30s & 40s which is what I'd expected!
