I'm trying to put together a book trailer for my Scottish Medieval novel that will be released in Spring 2010. I'm hoping to find colored images/illustrations/photos/pictorials of some sort for the time period of 1450-1500. I'd like the clothing to be authentic to the time period which will rule out kilts. My hero is a MacPhearson with dark hair and my heroine is a MacKenzie with auburn hair.
