Filled with period classics ranging from the finest designer creations to chainstore kitsch, Miller's Collecting the 1950s evokes the halcyon days of the era. After offering a useful outline of the chronology of the decade, the guide is then divided into three sections. "Homestyle" steps inside the 1950s house, featuring everything from furniture, ceramics, and glass to lighting, kitchenware, and what was then the latest technology. "Fashion" uncovers womenswear and men's style, as well as desirable accessories. "Leisure" presents an array of nostalgic children's toys, books, cinema, and rock and pop. The important names featured include Terence Conran in Britain, Charles and Ray Eames in North America, Christian Dior in France, and Arne Jacobsen in Denmark.
