Beth Levine Shoes

Серия: "-"

"Beth Levine Shoes" is a showcase of gorgeous, full-color photographs of Beth Levine's groundbreaking shoe design and the story of this pioneering woman who went from Long Island farm girl to shoemaker for stars such as Nancy Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, and Barbra Streisand. Although she was a truly visionary designer, Levine's shoes were sold under her husband's name because female shoe designers were unheard of in her time. This book will give her the credit she deserves for her fashion-forward work, including introducing mules, stilettos, and fashion boots to the American market. Her work is featured in museums around the world. Her designs are still setting trends today and in photographs look as fresh now as when they were first produced. The book features more than 60 full-page photographs of Levine's shoes - sexy, sensual, and playful - accompanied by quotes, a biography of Levine and archival material.

Hélène Vérin

Hélène Vérin, née en 1940, est une historienne et philosophe des techniques française.

Chargée de recherches au CNRS au Centre Alexandre Koyré[1], elle a publié des ouvrages essentiels sur l'entreprise et l'ingénieur et de nombreux articles sur les théâtres de machines[2].

Elle a contribué avec Jacques Guillerme à la publication de la revue Amphion. Etudes d'Histoire des techniques, et dans ce cadre, elle a participé à la découverte en France de la pensée d'Herbert A. Simon.

Elle est à l'origine du renouvellement historiographique qui s'opère actuellement autour de la formation des savoirs pratiques avec la « réduction en art »[3]. Ce paradigme, qui a marqué l'époque moderne, constitue la première manifestation de la volonté de rationalisation de l'action, au nom de son efficacité.
