Calendar 2005 - Shoes: Four Centuries of Historic Footwear

Calendar 2005

Shoes: Four Centuries of Historic Footwear

Sally Queen, Editor
Texas Tech University Press, publisher
Costume Society of America, partner

$4.00 + s/h

Twelve new collections in North America and great images of shoes, boots, and footwear for four centuries. The 1927 Louis Vuitton shoe trunk featured on the cover overflowing with shoes from the 1920s and 30s offers just a hint of the treasures found at Toronto's Bata Shoe Museum. Its world class collection housed in an award winning architectural gem is an unparalleled destination for shoe lovers and scholars from around the world. The Bata Shoe Museum is also the January feature.

Melissa Leventon (www.curatrix.com) writes in her introduction to the calendar: "From Romans' sandals to Carrie Bradshaw's Manolo Blahniks, shoes have been far more to us than attractive or functional coverings for our feet. They may symbolize status, gender or sex, luck, fertility, or vanity. Shoes in popular stories and legends enable gods to fly, a prince to discover his true love, or a little girl and her dog to return to Kansas...Shoes are perhaps the most significant and culturally powerful fashion accessory there is"

Every shoe "collector" will enjoy the year with over 70+ images from Harry Truman's bucks to Venetian chopines, cowboy boots, Native American moccasins, and sexy boots. "Shoes" is a year of touring that you won't speed-walk through!
