Reviews

"To this end, Rakewell is looking forward to the publication of Jane Austen's Wardrobe by Hilary Davidson (Yale University Press)" --Rakewell column, Apollo Magazine

"An intriguing and wholly original approach to Jane Austen. . . . A most delightful book and a must for every Austen reader."--Claire Tomalin, author of Jane Austen: A Life

"The definitive compendium of Jane Austen's clothes, recreated from fragments, by an acknowledged mistress of the field. Open the book, the author invites, as you might a chest of drawers, to find anything but a dowdy spinster."--Amanda Vickery, author of Behind Closed Doors

"This gorgeously illustrated volume from the world's leading expert on the fashion of the Regency era lifts the skirts on Jane Austen's wardrobe."--Paula Byrne, author of The Real Jane Austen

"Hugely enjoyable, charmingly illustrated and beautifully produced, a book to linger over and which, moreover, sheds light on just how seriously Jane Austen took fashion."--Claire Wilcox, author of Patch Work
