    Aims and Scope

    This book contains contributions which focus on the question of the relationship between dress and image. The contributions show that the dress depicted in images goes beyond documenting a past status quo, and instead constructs realities and reveals symbolic potential. The articles also focus on realia used in images and work on the interface between image, script, and object sources. They expand the iconographic methods of "material culture".
