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 researched and richly illustrated book offers a wide variety of head coverings through the ages. The authors present exemplary historical sources which form the foundation for their interpretations and also give advice on how to wear the headdresses. The sources for the 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, Germany. The 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 crete patterns, sew different seam types and neaten cut edges. A section on material ensures that you will be able to choose the right fabrics and colours.
