Another review for Elephant's Breath & London Smoke

by Carol Wood

Just got my copy of "Elephant's Breath & London Smoke: Historic colour names, definitions & uses," ed. by Deb Salisbury. I LOVE it! I'm a sucker when linguistics meets costuming and this is a great book, I think.

I've as yet only looked up a few color terms and I think it's well done.

Didn't know about it until I read a book review in the latest issue of the Virtual Costumer ( and I just love it!

What do others think of it so far?

Thank you, Carol!
