The very first book on the subject of costume illustration for the movies, Hollywood Sketchbook, contains over 500 previously unpublished drawings. More than just pretty pictures, each drawing provides a blueprint for the creation of a costume and a character. This gorgeous volume affords the viewer a rare peek inside the portfolios of a century of costume designers and illustrators including Theadora Van Runkle (Bonnie and Clyde, The Godfather: Part II), Piero Tosi (The Leopard, Death in Venice), and Travis Banton (Scarlet Empress, Blonde Venus). Academy Award-nominated costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis follows-up her acclaimed Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design, to showcase the artistry of costume illustrators and designers from silent film to today's blockbusters.
