Book Description

28 Jun 2001
The eyes have it in this colourful selection of outrageously whimsical eyeglass stylings from the fabulous 1950s and hip 1960s! Whether dotted with rhinestones, moulded into 'cat's-eyes', or built up into tiara-like proportions, eyeglass frames with "specs appeal" are among today's hottest and most collectible fashion accessories. The 450 colour photographs and vintage ads shown here offer a dazzling eyeful of the best these eras had to offer. From harlequins to earring glasses, French "girl-watchers" to the original "rose-colored glasses", these eye-catchers capture '50s and '60s eyewear design in all its swooping, glittery glory. The jaunty, informative text includes identifying information, historical notes, and hints on how to adapt frames from the past for modern use. A current price guide completes this "blast from the past", sure to be the apple of every collector's eye!

4.0 out of 5 stars A college professor for the Theater Dept 29 Dec 2013
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A college professor for the Theater Dept (also my cousin) loved this book. She teaches costume design and said this will help her visualize the time periods. I told her that's nice and should I need to "visualize", I'll just Google. This is a great book that she enjoyed.
