Pre-order our book! Creators of Character



I spent my pandemic summer of 2020 writing portions of the draft for this forthcoming book, A History of the Theatre Costume Business: Creators of Character, with my coauthors Triffin and Gregory Morris, and it's now available for pre-order!


The best way to pre-order is to call or visit your local independent bookstore--that will let them know that people are interested in the book and consider stocking it.


The second-best thing is to order directly from the publisher, here at this link.


And, the book can also be pre-ordered on Amazon, here.


Other excellent things you can do to support our work:


I wrote most of the chapter, "A Stitch in Time: the early designer-drapers" and portions of the chapter, "The Coming of the Continentals: light hands for ballet and opera."

The 232-page book--releasing on September 30, 2021--will include 159 full-color illustrations and photographs. We're planning some book parties post-release, so I'll share more info on those when I get it. Triffin and I will also be filming a book preview panel for a YouTube video releasing in August.


More news on release parties and such to come!
