*Ingham, Rosemary, and Liz Covey. The Costume Technician’s Handbook: A Complete Guide for Amateur and Professional Costume Technicians (Completely Revised and Updated Edition of the Costumer’s Handbook). Portsmouth, New Hampshire: Heinemann Educational Books, Inc., 1992.
This is a very well-regarded general costuming book, not focused on historical accuracy but useful as a broader resource, particularly with regards to pattern-drafting and technical aspects of costuming like dyeing and wig creation. It was originally published in 1980 but was completed updated for the 1992 edition. For modern theatrical construction techniques, this book is very helpful, but for historical accuracy, it is important to look elsewhere for the details. The book is instructional but not very historical. It contains monochrome images as well as a color section. It does not contain a bibliography. I personally own this book, and would recommend it as a general resource for theatrical-style costuming, as well as for costume shop logistics.
