Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Mechanical Brides considers gender segregation -- both implicit and explicit -- in the home and workplace by linking appliances and business equipment to their life in culture. The social, economic, and sexual meanings of objects are revealed through advertising, photo-journalism, film stills, and an analysis of changing design styles. This book will appeal to anyone interested in advertising, industrial design, American studies, cultural studies, or women's studies. "Thorough, annotated, good-looking, and well-written. It shows off, very well, the imagination and extensive scholarship that created the project". -- Victoria Milne, Blueprint "Relentlessly witty.... Hits a major nerve.... Gazing into the emotionally charged universe of the home, curator Ellen Lupton has lifted the lid on the history, of modern sexuality". -- Kay Larson, New York
