"In this nostalgia-packed celebration of textile design during its riotous midcentury years, over 170 striking full-color photographs accompanied by a lively text and detailed captions document the bold new patterns and unprecedented color combinations that had taken over American décor. ... Organized by pattern-type into ten chapters, Fabulous Fabrics also covers the floral prints and Hollywood-inspired satins of the 30s and the vivid tropical and nautical designs of the 40s."--Publisher description
Making waves : swimsuits and the undressing of America by Lena Lenček( Book )
7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 378 libraries worldwide
The revealing story of how skin went public in America. The swimsuit--more than any other type of clothing--is an item of fantasy and a challenge to daring fashion designers. Making Waves explores every aspect of the design and manufacture of swimwear and delves into the psychological and social roots of swimsuit styles and their appeal. Illustrated with over a hundred photographs, lithographs and drawings, this book chronicles the evolution of swimsuits from the nineteenth century to the present day. The contemporary and historical illustrations include provocative swimwear advertisements featuring the sexy physiques of Hollywood stars Marilyn Monroe, James Garner and Ronald Reagan; swimsuit pinups by Alberto Varga and George Petty; and, collected in a book for the first time, a selection of swimsuit photographs from Sports Illustrated's annual tribute to the female form.--From publisher description

J. D. Salinger's "A Perfect Day for Bananafish," John Cheever's "Goodbye, My Brother," Doris Lessing's "Through the Tunnel": These and dozens of other beloved stories share the beach as their setting. In fact, it is remarkable how many of the finest writers have set stories and novels in whole or in part at the beach -- and how often they use this locale to explore the great themes of love, loss, death, family, and redemption. Beach brings together, for the first time, the very best of this literary tradition, including stories, novel excerpts, and narrative nonfiction

Freak show : sideshow banner art by Carl Hammer( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 121 libraries worldwide
"Bearded ladies, two-headed boys, an alligator-skinned man ... these were the kinds of "freaks" featured in sideshows of travelling fairs and circuses from the late eighteenth century through the fifties, and the large, brazen banners that advertised their charms were as colorful and intriguing as the attractions themselves. Freak Show celebrates the art of the sideshow with a wonderful collection of over fifty authentic banners. Sword Swallower! Priscilla, the Monkey Girl! Woman Changing to Stone! Each banner promised incredible feats or extraordinary deformities, each more outrageous than the last. It didn't seem to matter whether these acts were real or orchestrated, just as long as they drew in the crowds."--Jacket
