Found another costume book!

It's a redrawing, but it's the first time I've seen so many Lithuanian women in the one place.

(I found it while browsing The Frazzled Frau)

I've seen the drawing of the girl with the 'plaid' cloak, but not her friend with the funky hat and the bucket. Not to mention the back-view person.

People who want to see a picture from 1571 of Cannibalism in Muscovy and Lithuania can click here.

Why do you say "redrawing"? Is it redrawn from an earlier version?

Mmmhmm, it's more than likely.

The top row look like the 'noble' Lithuanian women that had been drawn and re-drawn since the 1520's (see here (http://pearl.livejournal.com/132435.html))

I need to double check the dates for some of the bottom row.
