9780615256566: Streamlined Irons

Just published title: "Streamlined Irons" Gloriously photographed, beautifully designed, thoroughly researched, this 196 page, hard cover book is the first and only book about vintage electric irons. Focused on the era of streamlining, a design phenomenon of the 1930s and 40s, 154 streamlined irons are shown, most of them made in the U.S.A. In a chapter all their own are 30 of the very earliest electric irons: these are the rarest , most are one-of-a-kind. Date, name and place of manufacturer is indicated for more than 3/4 of the irons. Patent information is listed for many. The book includes four essays, two historical and two on the aesthetics of the irons. Offered is a fascinating history of the first entrepreneur to produce electric irons in the United States, Charles E. Carpenter. The Index includes a RARITY GUIDE for the streamlined irons. No expense spared in production of this book. All 300 photographs are in color. Hard bound, printed in the U.S.A on deluxe paper. This book is full of pleasurable surprises for the iron collector, the student of mid-twentieth century or industrial design, the fan of early electric appliances, and those who enjoy quilting and/or dressmaking.
