I just watched "A Very Long Engagement", which is a french film set in the late teens and early 1920's, france. The costumes are just wonderful and it got me thinking how I'd like to make an outfit or two from that era for kicks and grins. (I really just want to have a tea party in costume in my old house...).
I recommend the book to anyone interested in that style of costuming. It had excellent details for the stage sets as well, with the Art Nouveau script subway signs proclaiming "METROPLITAN", and the furniture and housewares were all a pleasure to look at.
