Compacts and Smoking Accessories Paperback / softback
Cosmetics and tobacco are two of the 20th century's most fascinating fashion influences, for they inspired new accessories for the well-dressed woman.
This book highlights the evolution of popular vanity cases by investigating materials from compact, cigarette case and lighter manufacturers.
The book begins with a history of cosmetics, and their impact on society, and goes on to show how compacts evolved to hold cosmetics and who fashioned them.
The tobacco-related containers are also traced from their beginnings to the establishment of a new line of accessories for both men and women.
Through her newly revised text and hundreds of color photographs and advertising pieces of examples arranged chronologically, the author provides a wealth of information in this growing collector's field.
