Elephant’s Breath & London Smoke: Historical Colour Names, Definitions & Uses

by Deb Salisbury
ISBN 978-0-9739278-2-5
7 x 10 Trade Paperback
Release date: spring 2009
I’ve known Deb Salisbury for nearly a decade; she’s a remarkable historical garment pattern maker, who, through her extensive research, has compiled a considerable body of information. Elephant’s Breath & London Smoke is an indispensable tool for the historical garment maven and researcher, covering colour names, definitions and uses through primary sources from Elizabethan through Edwardian Eras, and will be the first of three books on historical garment terms, fabrications and fashion.
