Costume book from Block & Erdmann

I haven't seen notification of this anywhere else here, but Paula Block & Terry Erdmann recently posted this exciting Amazon link on their Facebook page:

"Star Trek: Costumes: Five Decades of Fashion from the Final Frontier" [hardcover]

"This deluxe book will showcase the unique costumes featured in the Star Trek franchise, from Mr. Spock’s staid Starfleet uniform to Uhura’s alluring mirror universe outfit. The book will feature a dazzling wardrobe gallery that explores beautiful and innovative fashions from the various film and television versions of Star Trek, including many different iterations of the iconic Starfleet uniform, exquisitely designed alien garb, and much, much more.

"Every costume will be examined in intimate detail, tracing the design process from preproduction sketches to the final stunning outfit. Exclusive interviews with costume designers and experts will put the images into context. This unique visual treat will delight Star Trek fans and fashionistas alike."

Re: Costume book from Block & Erdmann

September 2015! Goodness that's a long wait. I'll probably pick it up though - I always loved Bill Theiss's costumes on TOS, particularly from "The Cloudminders" and some of his other innovative arrangements of fabric.

Cool! I eschew behind-the-scenes works usually, but I'm totally into learning more of the various uniforms. Playing STO made me a sucker for Starfleet fashions.

Excuse me, please. I've got to mark my calendar.

I'm the opposite. I typically seek them out. Like yourself, I'll be getting this one. I just wish that it were a bigger, coffee table sized book. The illustrations and pictures would be complimented by a larger format.
