Τhe Hellenic American Union, in cooperation with the Society for Macedonian Studies and Militos Publications, presents in Thessaloniki the first two volumes with drawings of traditional costumes and headdresses by Gissis Papageorgiou. The first volume features traditional costumes from Macedonia, with a total of 130 sketches, and the second, 90 sketches from Thrace. Volumes with traditional costumes from Epirus, Thessaly, Central Greece, Peloponnese, Crete, Dodecanese, the Ionian Islands, the Aegean Islands, Cyprus-Pontos-Minor Asia and Sarakatsani costumes will follow.

The 12-volume bilingual publication, Hellenic Traditional Costumes, is a monumental work for Greek folklore and comprises the most extensive and possibly most complete inventory of Greek dress from the Greek world of the 19th and early 20th century. The initial core material of Gissis Papageorgiou’s drawings of Greek traditional costumes was based on material in folklorist Andreas Papageorgiou’s extensive private collection, located in the town of Limni in Euboea.

The work is published by the Hellenic American Union in cooperation with Militos Publications and the Hellenic Folklore Research Centre of the Academy of Athens.

The volumes will be presented by: Yiannis Boutaris (Mayor of Thessaloniki), Nikolaos Mertzos (President of the Society for Macedonian Studies) and Manos Stefanidis (Adjunct Professor at the Department of Theater Studies, Athens University).
Leonidas-Phoebus Koskos, Executive Director of the Hellenic American Union, will coordinate the discussion.
