New Book: Eyewear by Moss Lipow

We are very excited about the launch of Eyewear, a new Taschen book of ‘optical opulance’ by designer Moss Lipow. Exhibiting over 500 years of designs collated from two decades of trawling eBay, auction houses, garage sales and flea markets.

From aviators to cateyes, the book documents the fascinating evolution of eyewear mapping its beginnings as functional apparatus into its current status as a multibillion dollar industry. A goldmine of images provides a uniquely specialist and hugley inspirational display of eyewear – a valuable reference souce for any designer.

For further inspiration, take a look at our recent eyewear Trend Alert exploring emerging print and pattern optical styles for spring/summer 2012.
