Historical dress and textiles, always a topic of popular interest, has in recent years become an academic subject in its own right, transcending traditional genre boundaries. This annual journal includes in-depth studies from a variety of disciplines. The contents cover a broad geographical scope and a range of periods from the early Middle Ages to the Renaissance.

The first three volumes are now available as a specially-priced set. Topics covered include: Anglo-Saxon embroidery; textiles and textile imagery in the Exeter Book; the Latin inscription embroidered on the Bayeux Tapestry; clothmaking in twelfth-century French romances; medieval Paris as an international textile market; the use of jewelled animal pelts as fashion accessories in the Renaissance; soft furnishings; aristocratic children's clothing, and much more.
