This insightful study of traditional Mexican clothing is based on authentic dolls made by folk artists in Mexico. With over 550 color photographs, it is a beautiful and comprehensive review that relates customs, language, music, and folk arts to a blending that is wholly Mexican and now its national culture. Mens and womens regional clothing is explored, including serapes, sombreros, Colonial dress, skirts, and shawls. Dolls, period photographs, and adult clothes present a visual story tracing variations that clothing has undergone from decade to decade. Today, people in all walks of life will find this refreshing look at traditional Mexican attire to be fascinating and inspiring.

Wendy Scales has studied and collected Mexican folk art and dolls for over 25 years. She earned a college degree at the Universidad de las Americas in Cholula, Puebla, just east of Mexico City. There she discovered the costume dolls, primarily from the love of their clothing, which prompted her concentration in this specialty field.
