Warman's Shoes Field Guide

by Caroline Ashleigh

More than a price reference, this title is an illustrated history of shoes through the ages, right up to Manolo Blahnik. Just as people buy shoes on their aesthetic appeal, this guide has a layout that is hip, fresh and sleek looking, featuring everything from 1970s disco platforms, mod leather boots, sky-high stilettos, even celebrity and sports footwear. Author Caroline Ashleigh is a respected appraiser of couture and fashion, regularly appearing on Antiques Roadshow. Ashleigh focuses on the fun, not just the facts, of shoe collecting. First to market, portable and with more than 400 gorgeous color images, this is the only book on collectible footwear with current pricing.
