It's a bold claim. But while Charlotte Fiell and Emmanuelle Dirix's 1930s Fashion book may not be 'the definitive sourcebook' as its sub-title claims, there's no denying the wealth of imagery contained within its covers.
It's put together by the same people who brought you the 1920s Fashion Sourcebook and it works on much the same principle, travelling season by season through the decade with masses of original imagery. An introductory essay explains the importance of the 1930s to the development of fashion, particularly with the rise of ready-to-wear.
There's 576 pages of glamorous fashion to explore here. And currently available for £19.50 on Amazon, it's perfectly priced to be the book you'll be flicking through this Christmas.
