Costumers’ Quarterly Magazine

(1987-2001)

Table of Contents

 

 

The ICG published Costumer’s Quarterly magazine in print from 1987 to 2001. We are pleased to make this valuable resource available once again to the costuming community in a digital facimilie edition.

To create this archive, print copies of CQ were scanned at 300dpi and converted to image PDF format. Then, OCR was performed using Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 to make issues fully searchable. Finally, complete indexes by issue and author were created to make the contents easily accessible. File sizes are around 5Mb each. More issue will be added as they are located, scanned and processed.

Special thanks to Kathe Gust for months of work locating and scanning issues, and indexing content, to create this amazing archive of costuming know-how and ICG history. Thanks also to Carl Coling, Byron Connell, Pierre Pettinger, and Trudi Moe Roser for making personal copies of print issues available.
