Been looking out for a new coffee table tome? Both those with 20:20 vision, and those needing a bit more of a helping hand are sure to delight in the new book Cult Eyewear by Neil Handley.
Neil Handley is the Curator of the British Optical Association Museum so he knows his specs. This book charts their history from the 1780s to the present day. Probably of most interest to Retro To Go readers is how he charts the story of some of the world's most famous eyewear brands, such as Ray-Ban and Persol. The book is heavily and attractively illustrated, with over 500 illustrations over its 192 pages (there's a sample spread below), and is suitably pleasing on the eye.
With plenty of stylistic inspiration, the book will cost you £25.46 from Amazon.
