The only book that I am aware of is:
Kleidung nach Quellen des frühen Mittelalters : Textilien und Mode von Karl
dem Grossen bis Heinrich III by Mechthild Müller. Berlin: W. de Gruyter,
2003. x, 337 p., 20 p. of plates : 80 ill. (some col.) ISBN3110172194
But a good knowledge of German is essentual. Few illus.
Detailed study examines textiles and costume during the Carolingian and
Ottonian periods. Drawing on archaeological, documentary, literary and
graphic sources, the study examines the clothing of men, women and the
clergy, decoration, accessories, fabrics, weaving and the manufacture of
clothing mostly in Germany between 800 and 1050. 337p, 10 col and 10 b/w pls
