About this title

Synopsis:

What is more ordinary than a pair of shoes? In a world where shoes have become objects of mass consumption, these accessories are now rid of any significance. The industry has accomplished its duty: producing a large quantity at a low price. But there was a time when the shoe symbolised the strength of the Roman legion, the power of the Medieval lords or the oppression of the Chinese woman. The history of the shoe is both vast and enthralling, as revealed by the author Marie-Josephe Bossan. Supporting her analysis with an outstanding iconography, the author gives these commonplace objects a universal quality that sheds light on the whole of civilisation and elevates them to the rank of works of art.

About the Author:

A graduate of the Ecole du Louvre, Marie-Josephe Bossan is curator at the International Museum of the Shoe in Romans, the French capital of the shoe industry. This museum houses the greatest shoe collection in the world with its twelve thousand specimens.
