Available Now: Nonfiction book, "Why Would Anyone Wear That?"

I've authored a new nonfiction book entitled "Why Would Anyone Wear That? Fascinating Fashion Facts" published by Intellect Press (2013). The beautifully illustrated book explores extreme fashions from head to toe, including the high pointed hennin hat, the codpiece, a corset, and chopine shoes. The fashion's popularity is discussed in terms of the social, political, and economic characteristics of the time (the Zeitgeist). I've attached the URL for a local television interview about the book on Fox 23 Good Day Green Country show:
