9781851243785: Menswear: Vintage People on Photo Postcards (The Bodleian Library - Photo Postcards from the Tom Phillips Archive)

To celebrate the acquisition of the archive of distinguished artist Tom Phillips, the Bodleian Library asked the artist to assemble and design a series of books drawing on his themed collection of over 50,000 photographic postcards. These encompass the first half of the twentieth century, a period in which, thanks to the ever cheaper medium of photography, ordinary people could afford to own portraits of themselves. Each of the books in the series contains two hundred images chosen from a visually rich vein of social history. Their covers also feature thematically linked paintings, specially created for each title, from Phillips’s signature work, A Humument.   Menswear shows men in all manner of outfits. Formal and casual, adorned with ties, gloves, pocket squares, and walking sticks, the men display both their individual style and the fads and fashions of the time. Each of these unique and visually stunning books give a rich glimpse of forgotten times and will be greatly valued by art and history lovers alike.
