Shoes, glorious shoes!

There are some historic shoes in The Seductive Shoe: Four Centuries of Fashion Footwear  that I would definitely revive and rush into production if I designed footwear. This opulent book has it all—or does it? Ask any shoe lover (or fetishist) and they will tell you "never enough." That's why we're also carrying Beth Levine Shoes, for like many of the designers in the former book—both named and anonymous—she transformed a necessity into high art. Below: racing, rhinestone slingback, paper twist, and all-American designs by Levine, "the First Lady of shoes."





Tomorrow is the second annual "Take Your Child To a Bookstore Day." Why not bring your progeny (or a young person of your acquaintance, if handy) to our actual physical bookstore in Columbia, Maryland to sample the munificent offerings and take advantage of the steep discounts? Or consider browsing the website, which is currently offering an additional 10 percent off books, CDs, and DVDs. Just click the magic icon at the top right of the screen to access bibliophile bliss!
Hopefully, it won't be snowing when you come!
