Lithuanian National Costume

Scans of "Lithuanian National Costume"(by Baltos Lankos), a book I have purchased in Nida at the Maxima, (the one and only supermarket here in the village). It's a collection of re-enacted photographs of people wearing 19th century national costumes of Lithuania, published in 2006. I am mostly intrigued by the strange mixture of the celebration of folk culture and it's staged presentation but also look at them with some humor.
