Shoes by Lucy Pratt( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 709 libraries worldwide
"From very long pointed toes in the Middle Ages to exotic creations of the 1990s, the story of footwear is a lively and evocative reflection of styles, fashions and moments in history. In Henry VIII's time, for example, exaggerated shapes and wide toes mirrored the aggressive social climate, while engravings of Queen Victoria showed impossibly narrow slippers in pursuit of nineteenth-century ideals of daintiness." "Engravings, paintings and advertisements help to tell the story, and the specially commissioned photography reveals the glorious colours and styles in stunning detail."--Jacket

3 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 606 libraries worldwide
How did our ancestors die? Whereas in our own day the subject of death is usually avoided, in pre-Industrial England the rituals and processes of death were present and immediate. People not only surrounded themselves with memento mori, they also sought to keep alive memories of those who had gone before. This continual confrontation with death was enhanced by a rich culture of visual artifacts. In The Art of Death, Nigel Llewellyn explores the meanings behind an astonishing range of these artifacts, and describes the attitudes and practices which lay behind their production and us

Art Nouveau exploded onto the art and design scene in the early 1890s and spread rapidly throughout the Western world. This lush volume--created to accompany a major museum exhibition that opened at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, before moving to the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., in October 2000--is the most beautiful, complete, and wide-ranging study ever published on this enormously popular and influential style

Medieval and Renaissance art : people and possessions by Glyn Davies( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
"This important and beautiful book accompanies the re-opening of the V&A's spectacular Medieval and Renaissance galleries. Presented thematically, it explores the social contexts responsible for some of the museum's most captivating objects, both commonplace and precious, to recover the attitudes of makers and owners towards artistic practice." "Rather than adopting the traditional sharp distinction between the Medieval and Renaissance, the authors explore aspects of the whole of this long period in European design and manufacture - an approach that emphasises the continuities and slow developments that were often as significant as sudden upheaval. A general historical introduction to the social and political background is followed by chapters that explore conceptions of art,workshops and sales, the classical past, ornament, religious art, health and body, and the ways in which objects themselves express the attitudes of their owners."--BOOK JACKET
