Shoe Collectors Book: Warman’s ® Shoes Field Guide
The Warman’s ® Shoes Field Guide is a pocket- size shoe collector’s price guide with 400 hundred illustrations of interesting 20th and 21st century shoes. To the best of my knowledge this is the only book on collectible contemporary footwear with a current pricing. Ashleigh is an acknowledged antiques and collectables appraiser and writes authoritatively about the subject. The book also includes sections on historical footwear as well as celebrity shoewear with shoe-related quotes liberally sprinkled throughout. As with all published material the estimated values are subject to change so the book has little real value to the serious collector but to shoe book enthusiasts, it is invaluable.
