From the Author:

In creating this book, my co-author Leslie Pina and I were amazed at the variety of examples we found which effectively illustrated our concept of "popular purses". Lucite, Enid Collins, glittery evening bags, exotic animal fabrics, "fantastic plastics", and many more all capture the exhilarating trends in popular fashion which began after World War II, and continued on into the 1950s and 1960s. "Popular Purses: It's In The Bag!" focuses on the most colorful and imaginative handbags of this era. We hope you'll find the book informative, visually appealing, and as much fun to read as it was to write! --Donald-Brian Johnson--
