Dressing Up

Cultural Identity in Renaissance Europe

Ulinka Rublack

  • A path-breaking study that imagines the Renaissance afresh by considering people's appearances: what they wore, what image they wished to create, and how this made them feel
  • Draws on an astonishingly wide range of sources to allow us to view the Renaissance from a completely new perspective
  • Brilliantly illustrated, with over 150 colour illustrations
  • Integrates its findings into wider arguments about consumption, visual culture, the Reformation, German history, and the relationship of European and global history
