I was browsing the magazine shelves of W.H. Smiths a few weeks ago when I found this little gem calling to me.
I should admit at this point if there is a magazine or a book with a hat on the front I will pick it up and delve inside just as I have a tendency when I see a hat in a film I have to pause and inspect it and then slow down the credits at the end to see if they credit the milliner.
Well on this occasion I was rewarded by this idiosyncrasy, as inside was a delightful collection of cuttings from 1930's fashion pages.
I have a real passion for costume and historic dress and the 1920's and 30's hold some of my favourite styles, knowing that I would come back time and again to these images to draw inspiration told me that the £5.99 spent on this book would make it a sound investment for my future projects.
