Veil, circlet, coife, bonnet, cap or hood? To give an authentic portrayal of a
medieval character, you will need an appropriate period headdress.
This carefully research and richly illustrated book offers a wide variety of
head coverings throughthe ages.
The authors present exemplary historical sources which form the foundation for
their interpretations and also give advice how to wear the headdresses.
The sources for sewing instructions range from early medieval pictures found in
the Maciejowski Bible and the Codex Manesse to High Middle Ages
archeological findings from London and late Middle Ages findings from Kempten
in the Allgaeu, South Germany.
This book includes an introduction to the necessary working techniques.
Clear and easily comprehensible instructions and pictures lead you through the
work process. Even a layman can thus create patterns, sew different seam types
and neaten cut edges. A section on materials ensures that you will be able to
choose the right fabrics and colours.
