A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The decade from 1954 to 1964 was one of America's great shopping sprees. Never before were there so many people able to acquire so many things, and never before was there such a choice. Thomas Hine calls it Populuxe--populism and popularity and luxury, plus a totally unnecessary "e" to give it a little class; the word itself is as synthetic as the world it denotes. With the help of more than 250 amazing and amusing pictures in black and white and color (and what colors!), Thomas Hine explores, recaptures and explains this glorious, vanished world of hopes and dreams and cock-eyed optimism. His book is both a celebration of a singular (and slightly bizarre) aesthetic and a revelation of America's not-so-distant past.

From the Author:

It's a pleasure to have written a book that so many people love, and it's a particularly rare privilege to have coined a word that a number of distinguished writers have found so useful. This hardcover reprint edition isn't quite as beautiful as the original from Knopf, but it comes very close, and at a very good price, too.
