Product Overview

In "Catalog: The Illustrated History of Mail-Order Shopping," Robin Cherry traces the timeline of these snapshots from American history and discovers along the way how we dressed, decorated our houses, worked, played, and got around. Catalogs are a record of how much things cost in different eras and how both language and graphic design have evolved. From corsets to bell-bottoms, from baby doll dresses and Doc Martens all the way to iPods, the history of these catalogs is the history of our lives and our culture. Organized into categories like clothing, food, animals, and houses, author Robin Cherry explores the vivid stories behind Sears, Montgomery Ward, Lillian Vernon, Harry & David, Jackson & Perkins, and of course, 45 years of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
