Rudofsky, Bernard.

Objectifies cultural psychology, performs a sociology of the maze of prejudices and inhibitions that have entrapped the expression of the human body.A book that is thought-provoking and entertaining, amusing and serious, wise and easy-to-understand, all at the same time. Rudolfsky's The Unfashionable Human Body is such a work. It's a discussion of apparel in the broadest sense of the word and how it has reflected and shaped attitudes to the human body (having often been literally used to shape the body itself). Text is accompanied by scores of compelling and fascinating illustrations.
