Following on from Vintage Fashion, Vintage Furniture and Vintage Shoes, Marnie Fogg has produced another hardback gem for the vintage collector – Vintage Handbags.

Vintage Handbags covers 100 years of handbag fashions, showing iconic and groundbreaking styles from each decade, ideal if you want a reference guide of if you're just looking for some inspiration in the bag department. Check out  Elsa Schiaparelli’s mesh bags for Whiting & Davis in the 1920s, the Hermès Kelly bag in the 1950s through to the Fendi Baguette of the 1990s and just about everything in-between. If that's not enough, there are also archive images, fashion photography and specially commissioned photographs of period pieces.

With a foreword by Anya Hindmarch, the book will be on the shelves via Carlton Books in September 2009, priced around the £25 mark (although Amazon is already doing pre-orders for a discounted price).
