A collaboration of manzi art space with Nha Nam Publishing House, 'Ngàn Năm Áo Mũ' is a very special historical display of images, paintings and royal costumes exploring the attire worn by Vietnamese people from all levels of society throughout the last 1,000 years.
Conducted by the 28-year-old researcher Tran Quang Duc of the Viet Nam Institute of Literature, this study is described as the most comprehensive research ever undertaken on the subject, and was published by Nha Nam Company and World publishing house earlier this year.
"It is an absolute blessing that such valuable resources have been published as a book. Up until now, this is most likely one of the most in-depth and into-details studies on the Vietnamese culture and clothing, both locally and internationally."
Researcher Trinh Bach, who has spent many years studying traditional culture, especially Vietnamese royal costumes, is one of many experts to praise the book.
