But this book is more than just a value guide - Fogg's prose captures the essence of each style, era and name, and through the handbag discusses how women have combined practicality, individualism, fashion and identity. As such, it is useful for the bargain hunter and the design student, as well as enthusiasts for all beautiful things.
