Inventive and intelligent costume design can show where and when the action is set, convey a clear idea of the psychology of the role, disguise an actor or heighten a well-known stock character. This comprehensive volume defines the costume designer's role, explains the techniques used by professionals, and guides the reader on how to research and construct costumes of many different kinds.
