Synopsis:

The fashion, history, and development of Jewish dress tells a story that spans the globe and crosses many cultures. In this colorful volume, Jewish communities?particularly those established for centuries in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa?are revealed through their garments. Stunning photographs spin tales of family traditions and religious devotion, with a special section dedicated to jewelry worn by brides and grooms. Superb photographs of specific garments, with many close-up details, are juxtaposed with rare contextual photographs from the Israel Museum?s archives to create a tapestry of a people revealed through textiles, costume, and images. More than 350 revelatory illustrations tell us how these precious articles of dress were originally worn.

About the Author:

Daisy Raccah-Djivre is curator of the Jewish Wardrobe project and chief curator of Jewish Art and Life at the Israel Museum. No?am Bar?am-Ben Yossef and Ester Muchawsky-Schnapper are curators, Alia Ben-Ami is collection manager, and Efrat Assaf-Shapira is assistant curator, all in the Wing for Jewish Art and Life at the Israel Museum.

Book Description 5 Continents, 2012. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Neuf. Drawing on the Israel Museum's rich collection of Jewish dress, the largest of its kind worldwide, this colorful volume explores aspects of Jewish identity: integration and segregation; tradition, transition, and innovation. Written for a broad audience, the book addresses such general issues as the impact of widespread migration, as well as specific questions like the ritual requirements that determine special garments. This presentation of the collection, illuminated by in-depth research, reveals the diversity of pre-modern Jewish attire and documents the dress traditions of many different communities. Lavish pictures of garments are juxtaposed with rare contextual photographs from the Museum's archive, attesting to individual and communal taste and also offering a source of inspiration for fashion designers today. Joining these images to detailed texts, The Jewish Wardrobe will serve as a lasting resource for scholars and enthusiasts alike. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-18650616753
