Product description


'Cult Eyewear celebrates particularly innovative designs and historically important inventions, setting them in context and discussing their legacies.' --Boutique 1 Magazine

'Few books are written about glasses so when I heard about Neil Handley's book's imminent publication via a number of highly respected eyewear designers, all of whom had been consulted in its creation, I knew it must be good. Disappoint, it does not.'

'Cult Eyewear is a coffee table tome worth its place in any home… Eyewear enthusiast or not, anyone with an eye for design or fashion will struggle not to enjoy every carefully illustrated page. The breadth of information is terrific and each time I dip into another chapter, I find out something else. But it is the pictures that steal the show… Cult Eyewear is spectacular in every sense.' --'Eye Wear Glasses' Blog

'a fascinating read' --Polaroid

'Neil Handley provides a rich history of eyeglasses... he skillfully educates us as well as entertains and enlightens via his study of this rarely examined accessory... If you know someone who owns more than a couple of pairs of glasses or know someone who collects them, then this is the perfect gift.' --New York Journal of Books

'An intriguing perspective of the iconic brands who redefined eyewear' -- Eyestylist

'One of the most fascinating tomes on the history of eyewear. A celebration of design as well as a chronicle of the global industry...' -- EDGE

'a gorgeously produced coffee table volume' --Technorati

'This is a great new addition to any serious collector's bookshelf or coffee table ... it really should be classed as a "Must Have"' --Ophthalmic Antiques

Sure to be a fascinating read. --Polaroid

About the Author

Neil Handley is Curator of the British Optical Association Museum at the College of Optometrists in London. He is Vice Chairman of the Scientific Instrument Society, a member of the editorial panel for the journal Ophthalmic Antiques, and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers.
