by Jess Lyn

This is a collection of photographs taken by Henry Bourne at many British folklore festivals. These festivals are well known for not only their music and story telling, but also the wonderful display of costumes worn by the revelers. 

This isn't a book you pick up to read. As another reviewer stated, it is a 'coffee table book'. There is a short introduction at the beginning of the book but other than that, it is full of colorful photographs of various costumes depicting modern day interpretations of British folklore. 

While looking through this book the first thing that popped through my head was...Look at all the wonderful costume ideas. I am already putting some of the costumes onto pattern. 

Arcadia Britannica: A Modern British Folklore Portrait: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
