Description: "The aim of this book is to trace the development of decorative style in the vestments through ten centuries, with reference to the influence of fashions in the applied arts in general. It is hoped that the high level of illustration (nearly 300 items, of which 110 are in full colour) will introduce the reader to a visually exciting and much neglected aspect of the decorative arts."--BOOK JACKET.
