Rare exemplaire complet de sa jaquette de l’ouvrage de Bernard Rudofsky intitulé Are Clothes Modern? an Essay on Contemporary Apparel. Cet ouvrage publié en 1947 est le prolongement de la réflexion initiée avec l’exposition qui prit place à New York au MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) en 1944 sous le titre Are Clothes Modern ?
La mention suivante figure sur la laquette : « Obviously, Are Clothes Modern ? is not a treatise on historic costume, on pattern making or merchandising. Though it digresses necessarily into historical and psychological matters, it is written for the adult reader whether he be professionally interested in present-day clothing or merely intrigued by its social and ethical aspects. »
