img280 No, it is not what you think it is! I am still working my way through the book titled Ornament a Social History Since 1450by Michael Snodin and Maurice Howard, published in 1996 on the occasion of the opening of the fabulous European Ornament Gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, United Kingdom. This is a serious study in 230 pages. It is also a great aid to those studying Interior Design or those of you out there experimenting with this art form. In it are these delicious pages relating to, oh yes, fashion, and in particular the Polo shirt.
