Corwin Fuller Professor of Film Studies Jeanine Basinger recently reviewed a new book, Hollywood Sketchbook, by Deborah Nadoolman Landis in The Wall Street JournalLandis, a costume designer herself, “defines the difference between the designer’s costuming goal and the role of the sketch artist. Costume sketches were never intended to be fashion drawings: Kinetic, emotional and drawn for a specific personality or character, they were about much more than clothes,” writes Basinger.
