Did you know that women have used soot, ground ants' eggs, beet juice and poisonous lead as makeup? Or that Civil War soldiers used handkerchiefs as the first dog tags. This is a very engaging book that can be for recreational reading as well as for reports on the historical and social changes in fashion throughout history. FROM HEAD TO TOE: BOUND FEET, BATHING SUITS, AND OTHER BIZARRE AND BEAUTIFUL THINGS by JANICE WEAVER and the illustrations by FRANCIS BLAKE will keep you on your toes with the many interesting facts about fashion for men and women.

For grades five through eight.
