A fine source for anyone interested in world costumes. It contains color pictures, and descriptions of the typical folk costume of whatever region.

I've found a lot of these books, when they say "of the world", they usually mean Europe and half of Asia, there are many areas besides those featured in this book.
This is a great book to start out with if you want to learn more about various folk costumes.
