The author of the uniform book is responsible for accuracy in the photos. There seems to be a theme here that the author of the uniform guide will defer to the judgement of the re-enactors. Rather, the author/editor/art director should cherry pick the reenactors to be featured and the best shots of those re-enactors. I know it sometimes don't always work, but if the author doesn't know his stuff, it doesn't matter if the guide uses photos of re-enactors, commissioned illustrations, or Larry Leadhead cutouts, it won't be a very good guide.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Several recent uniform books have provided, in addition to the usual period photographs or artwork, photographs of re-enactors as references.

Do you feel that using photographs of modern re-enactors should be encouraged in uniform publications?
