PROJECT DESCRIPTION / Fabulous! Ten Years of FIDM Museum Acquisitions, 2000–2010, accompanies an exhibition at the FIDM Museum & Galleries that showcases two centuries of fashion (1800s–2000s). The design of this catalogue was based on a grid structure that allowed the page layout to be both structured and flexible. The catalogue has been divided into six historical periods: Empire Period 1800–1836, Expansion Era 1837–1865, Commodity Culture 1866–1901, Modern Age 1902–1945, Mid-Century Years 1946–1963, and Postmodern Times 1964–2010. A gate-fold timeline introduces each chapter giving the reader a synopsis of significant events of the time period. The catalogue contains beautiful garment details, designer drawings and croquis, as well as a complete object list, foreign fashion terms glossary and a thorough index.
Typeset in Avenir and Bembo. Printed at Clear Image Printing Company.
