"Conjuring up the festival atmosphere of those days when we never had it so good, Miller's Collecting the 1950s is filled with period classics, ranging from the finest designer creations to the ultimate in chainstore kitsch, from objects worth thousands of dollars to neglected treasures that can still be picked up for under $10. It contains all the essential information a budding collector needs and there is a price guide for every item shown." "The book is divided into three sections. Homestyle takes the reader inside the 1950s house, featuring everything from furniture, ceramics and glass to the latest technology, lighting and kitchenware. Fashion uncovers womenswear and examines men's style and desirable accessories. Leisure features children's toys books, movies, and music, capturing the fun of the 1950s and the excitement of its collectables."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
