Another Great Book from Mike Brown and Sabrestorm Publishing
on 12 October 2008
This book really makes you think about what you wear and why.
In flicking through the pages you realise the different aspects of everything that gives you "The Look". Obviously a great deal of research has gone into this book with every topic on what gave "The Look" in the 1950's being addressed. The contents include clothing for men, women, children and teenagers; home dressmaking, accessories, hairstyles and makeup with lots of other interesting snippets along the way.
It is a book that will delight old and young. It may be that you were around during this period and the splendid array of photographs will act as a reminder of what you have forgotten. If you are young it is a splendid way to see how people looked in the 50's and compare with "The Look" of today, which is very different.
You do not have to read this book from cover to cover to enjoy. Its just one of those books that you can just dip into.
The book is well written by Mike Brown and extremely well produced by Sabrestorm Publishing.
If you have an interest in fashion or history then this book definitely deserves a place in your book collection.
Well done to Mike Brown, Ian Bayley and the rest of the team who produced this book.
