L'evangile profane: rite féminin
is a stunning tome by the comtesse de Tramar which delves into several centuries of female fashion. The book features illustrations (both b&w and color!) by Lucien Metivet, Fernand Fau, and Henry Morin. I definitely recommend giving the book a look, if only for the absolutely gorgeous illustrations! I've posted three of my favorite 18th century fashion inspired illustrations from the book below.
