Re: ISO Bohemian garb info
- here is a web resource for you and her to take a look at
There is a book that these images come from, but i cant recall the
title right now. When i get back home, ill pull it off the shelf and
post it for you. These line drawings are often tracings of the
originals from period sources, but because of that some details may be
lost. However, it will give you a good start to 14th and 15th century
Bohemian style and fashion.
I wish her the best of luck, i too am working on a proper bohemian
persona and finding it very difficult yet interesting topic to
research. Hope to be of help
Best of luck,

- here is another link,
Click on the screen, then click the british flag to get it into
english. Most of the site is in Czech, but you can click your way
through to find what you want.
Also check out Slovnik.cz and googles language tools to translate
things into english. In order to research this culture you are pretty
much forced to work through czech (and german) language resources.
