Miller's collecting the 1950s evokes the halcyon days of the era, and is filled with period classics ranging from the finest designer creations to chainstore kitsch. The book begins with an introduction and a useful outline of the chronology of the decade; it is then divided into three sections. Homestyle takes the reader inside the 1950s house, featuring everything from furniture, ceramics, and glass to the latest technology, lighting, and kitchenware. Fashion uncovers womenswear and examines men's style and desirable accessories. Leisure features children's toys, books, cinema, and rock and pop. Names that feature include Terence Conran in Britain, Charles and Ray Eames in North America, Christian Dior in France, and Arne Jacobsen in Denmark.
