Hi, "Book Week" is around the corner, and Ha-Ir magazine of the Haaretz newspaper group already published a special book supplement in its honor. Happily, on page 22 devoted to the new books published by Resling, book critic Renana Peled wrote about "Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008."
"שיכרון עיצובים - אמנות האופנה בישראל"
Renana Peled describes the book as an "exemplary photographic archive....Bat-Yaar divides the book into conceptual chapters which follow chronologically the development of the fashion scene and she diversifies the discussion with many perspectives such as cultural, political and social ones.
The book is a must have guide to all fashion lovers for the understanding of our cultural evolution and the role fashion played in connecting the various facets of society. It also describes the everlasting search for personal style and local identity. Bat-Yaar accompanies the extensive selection of photographs with interesting articles written in fluent language and rich with behind the scenes information...."
Thanks so much, Renana Peled. I highly appreciate your professional and through approach to the subject that manifests the fact that you really delved deeply into the book.
