The seductive shoe

Book Cover
Average Rating
Stewart, Tabori & Chang,
Pub. Date:
From the first heeled shoes to contemporary stilettos, shoes are as much wearable art as utilitarian footwear. Walford (founding curator, Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto) presents a beautifully- illustrated social history spanning the 17th to 20th century as reflected in shoe fashions--without being overly Freudian about it. He includes an annotated listing of shoemakers, designers, manufacturers, awards for shoe design, and a glossary of shoemaking terms. Designer Manolo Blahnik (of Sex and the City fame) confers his praise on the reference. Stewart, Tabori & Chang is an imprint of Harry N. Abrams. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
