Synopsis

The eyes have it in this colourful selection of outrageously whimsical eyeglass stylings from the fabulous 1950s and hip 1960s! Whether dotted with rhinestones, moulded into 'cat's-eyes', or built up into tiara-like proportions, eyeglass frames with "specs appeal" are among today's hottest and most collectible fashion accessories. The 450 colour photographs and vintage ads shown here offer a dazzling eyeful of the best these eras had to offer. From harlequins to earring glasses, French "girl-watchers" to the original "rose-colored glasses", these eye-catchers capture '50s and '60s eyewear design in all its swooping, glittery glory. The jaunty, informative text includes identifying information, historical notes, and hints on how to adapt frames from the past for modern use. A current price guide completes this "blast from the past", sure to be the apple of every collector's eye!
