identity through costume

beautiful lithograph prints done by artist lepage-medvey in 1939. these two traditional costumes, with their lovely lace collars, were worn in the uherský brod region of the czech republic.all 40 prints are from the book costumes nationaux: autriche, hongrie, pologne, tcheco-slovaquie, editions hyperion.
