Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent book for anyone with a serious interest in the development and history of shoe design. Excellent pictures from the V&A's own collection along with other images to put that particular design in an historical context. Much more than a coffee table book, and definitely worth some serious study. Many other books on the subject of shoes just eulogise in overblown terms about the designers of the last 60 or 70 years, with lots of pictures and not much solid information. Ms Pratt's book is definitely one for reference and instruction.
