This is the first volume in a series of five as planned, three volumes already published.
The first volume contains text and photographs of the folk costumes of the following southern regions of Albania: Saranda & Delvina, Gjirokastra, Tepelena, Vlora, Berati, Fieri & Mallakastra and Lushnja. These are the south-western regions.
It is mainly a photographic documentary with splendid colour photographs of people in costumes (most of them full page) and details with an explanation per region written by the leading ethnologists in the field: Andromaqi Gjergji, Mark Tirto and Spiro Shkurti, all Prof. Dr. and Llambrini Mitrushi, ethnologist, supervised by Prof. Dr. Afërdita Onuzi.
Each chapter starting with a detailed map of the ethnographical regions makes
these volumes a perfect reference work and a gem on Albanian folk costumes.
