Most incredible STUNNING radio photography ever. 1 April 2010
By Cousin Hepcat - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The two Philip Collins radio picture-books, "Radios Redux" and "Radios: The Golden Age", are both ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKINGLY STUNNING. I have never seen radios look so good, and I am a collector. You will want to rip every one of the pages out and frame them.

These are mainly of the tabletop marbelized colored-plastic radios of the 1930's and 40's - the most good-looking of all the table radios, Ever. Catalin, bakelite, plaskon, and whatever other brand names they had for the plastics of the day - all seem to be represented.

Both of these books are equally, truly, EYE CANDY.

Stunning Radio's That Predate the iPad 20 Jan. 2012
By Jonathan Marks - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Philip Collins is a British radio collector who lives in Los Angeles. His two books are just breath-taking - and show that US radio manufacturers had style very much at heart when they designed plastic cases for their radios in the 1930's and onward. I have enormous respect for what they were able to do to combine functionality with looks. The colours were fantastic (though I am not sure that they would pass today's health and safety rules on the use of heavy metals. I'm guessing the bright yellow colours, for instance, must be as a result of cadmium. But none of this detracts from the book....something that would actually look beautiful on an iPad or a Kindle Fire. I believe the book is now out of print, but resellers got me a copy in less than a week. Highly recommended.

Another "must have" reference for antique radios 7 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Like the author's earlier book, "Radios: The Golden Age", this book has large, flawless photos of flawless radios, some are rare, some are just uncommonly beautiful. If you are restoring a radio that's pictured in this book, it's a must have to use as a guide.

A very nice book. Some gorgeous radios shown in here. A worthwhile addition for the radio collector, as is the other volume in the set.

Love the old radios best. The sound is wonderful. It's like listening to someone who has witnessed history. Great pics too.
