Broderte Bunader (Embroidered Bunads), A hundred years of bunad history Text by Anne Kristin Moe and photography by Laila Durán
For the first time, embroidered bunader of the 1900s are put into their historical context. As one of few in Norway doing research on bunader, cultural historian Anne Kristin Moe explains why and how the first embroidered bunader were designed at the turn of the century, and the emergence of a new look and way to use them during the interwar period.
Never before have so many of the most famous Norwegian bunader been shown along with the originals that inspired their designs. The book shows hundreds of Laila Durán's wonderful photographs, presented in both the historic interiors where they once were used and in the magnificent Norwegian scenery. The new images are shown along with historic photographs never previously shown to the public. Text in Norwegian only. Hardcover.
