I found this gem yesterday on russian torrent tracker and thought that it could be useful for some of you as a design reference. It is scanned book from 16th century! There are more than hundred pages of hand-painted costumes from Western and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa. Dated back to 1560 - 1570. Quality is meh, but what did you expect from sixteenth century concept artist?

And I also have a large collection of unusual swords and daggers. I can upload them too if anybody cares.
BTW, admins, if this is wrong thread for stuff like this, feel free to move it to the proper thread.
