I was at Barnes & Noble tonight & skimming the beauty section, when a NEW book caught my eye! What could this be? No, not about hair, makeup, clothes... but BAGS!!! It's called The Handbag: An Illustrated History by Caroline Cox: I HAD to get it!! It's new, from 2007, and it has the COMPLETE history of handbags, like from where they originated, up to the 20th century & popularity of the bags we love - the Hermes Kelly, LV, Balenciaga, Chloe ~ they're ALL in here And there are pictures Okay, if you don't really like reading history books, at least it's about bags, and there is some really cool info in it that I didn't know before (like how LV has a big corporation that owns a LOT of the other companies... I didn't know this!) If you are in a bookstore, especially like Barnes or Borders, I recommend browsing through it! Or get it- a GREAT coffeetable book! I don't come across books about handbags too often, so i HAD to share!!!
