FOR A LIMITED TIME....I have adjusted my price to an all time low for this e-book, was 29 dollars! In looking at the latest listings I still see a lot of mis-identified bags!
I want as many people who are interested in Enid to learn about her. Times are tight for everyone, so here you go...This is sent to you on a plain cdr and lets you decide to save it to your computer, or just insert the disc to read, freeing valuable computer space.
IMPORTANT MAC USERS: Unfortunatly this CD does not seem to run on a MAC...
Until now collectors of the Collins line have had little information on this great American folk artist. In fact, not much was known outside a small circle of major collectors!
This easy to use book on c-d was written with the help of Collins family members, artists for the Collins line, 1950's & 60's shop owners, and exhaustive research of some very important collections.
This is "The" reference for Enid Collins, Collins of Texas collectors & Vintage Purses. Written in 2003, but price guide is still accurate within 10-20% depending on area, venue and condition of bag. This book is more importantly about the history and evolution of the brand, and the style reference. Even if you are new to this designer, but collect 1950's Atomic Eames Era, and 1960's Mod, Hippie Era Vintage handbags, in general this e-book will delight you!
Note..every week lately I see more and more well meaning sellers listing bags here as Enid Collins bags..it is an easy mistake, learn how to tell instantly if what you see is a real Enid bag!
Chapters are arranged by theme. There were so many different designs each year, as Enid was incredibly prolific. Each chapter contains pages full of fabulous detailed color pictures as well as anecdotal history of the designs It is filled with so many great surprises. I'm sure you'll find it the best work on this wonderful artist to date!
It is a mod mod world still, or so it seems. In the past year or so, designers have sprung up all over the planet with purse lines obviously inspired by Enid Collins. Her style is still fun, and apparently contagious. Still there is NOTHING like the real deal.
I wanted to collect as many pictures of the designs as possible, to provide the viewer with a full gallery like experience. Enid's handbags were truly works of American folk art. It is impossible to own them all, of course but with this great c-d volume, it is the next best thing.
This book includes information never before known by many Collins of Texas collectors, and serves as a great learning tool for new collectors. It provides great detail on the identification & care of the bags as well, serving as the perfect reference & values guide.
ABOUT THE CD ITSELF... as stated above the ebook is sent on a plain cdr-cd in file format to ensure most all computers can read the file. I prefer to send the hard copy of the c-d on a disc rather than a download so you have a back up in case something goes wrong with your computer someday. This way you can save it to your hard drive, or just insert the cd -disc when you want to view it. Instructions to open the book are easy. Sorry, at this time It is not available for download or in print form.
Just insert into the disc drive, open the cd in the drive, and click or-double click on "index one" then you turn pages and click through chapters like a regular book! Arrows at the top turn pages in each chapter so be sure you view them all. Pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them as well.
I'm so excited to offer this Great Mid Century to Modern Artist to new viewers. To see all of these handbags in one place is truly like a walk through a fine museum. They are able to be appreciated by art lovers of all venues for their sculptural integrity, and design. They are addictive!
