About the Author

The Design Museum's mission is to celebrate, entertain, and inform. It is the world's leading museum devoted to contemporary design in every form from furniture to graphics, and architecture to industrial design. It is working to place design at the centre of contemporary culture. It demonstrates both the richness of the creativity to be found in all forms of design, and its importance. Design is a hugely fertile field of inventive new work, as well as a key component underpinning the modern economy. It provides a means for understanding the contemporary world, and, potentially, for making it a better place.

Format: Hardcover
For all shoes fans. An incredible story of how shoes influence our lives. From not very pretty crocs to stunning jimmy choos. It seems to be a set of short stories for fashionistas as well as a great resource of fashion research. Can't wait to get other books from this series.

the inside pages of the book are very clean and good as new
but i was a bit dissapointed with the cover which is torn on certain areas and dirty (black marks everywhere)
yet regarding the price and the good condition inside I'm still a happy customer

This book is part of a classic - must have - series and deals with its subject matter in a remarkable way. You can dip in and out with ease and still build up a clear picture of how design has changed something as fundamental as the shoe over the last 70 years or so.
