About the Author

Susan Langley discovered as a little girl that vintage hats and clothing are links to our past that we can examine and learn from. As a child, she brought her Grandma a "funny" hat she had found in an old trunk, and her grandmother said "Susie, my great-grandmother worse this hat to the train station to see Abraham Lincoln's funeral train when it came through Syracuse in 1865." Thus began Susan Langley's fascination with vintage hats.

This book is a wonderful extraordinary follow-up to Roaring 20's Fashion: Jazz. The photos and clothes are out of this world! The historical overviews are very well done, and give the clothes and vintage photos a context relevant to the times that they were worn! BRAVO!!!!!

I loved Ms. Langley's vintage hat book so well I was amost afraid to be disappointed by her new books on the Roaring 20s - I shouldn't have been. She truly surpassed herself with books that transcend the category of collecter's books. Yes, this book is organized and comprehensive. The clothes are fabulous and the photos of them due them justice. The fashion plates and advertisements are beautiful and greatly entertaining enhancements placing the clothing in context of the times. I must admit my favorite part of the book is the vintage photographs which along with the loving and witty narrative breathe a life and tenderness into this book that raises it far above a collector's guide.

Roaring '20's Fashions by Susan Langley is just wonderful. She has gone the extra mile by showing the advertisement or sketch and then showing an actual item that is as close to if not identical to the ad. I always looked at the magazine ads and wondered what the actual garment or accessory really looked like. Now I know. I will gleefully await her next book! The photographs are done well (good angles and lighting)and her commentary is lively. I would recommend to one and all! And I have.

These books on 1920s fashion (Jazz, which covers 1920-1924; and Deco, which covers 1925-1929) are an absolute treasure! I was hoping to find books that discussed fashions of the decade, but I was more than pleasantly surprised to get a history lesson in the process. I know fashions are dictated by the times, but I had no idea just how greatly 1920s fashion was shaped by year to year events, all covered in this marvelous set of books. Believe me, if you purchase one, you are going to want them both so you can have information on the entire decade.
The books are loaded with historical photos, period advertisements, and beautiful color photos of actual 1920s garments, hats, and accessories. I work for a small town museum, and this set of books has inspired me to create an exhibit on the 1920s in our area, especially once I realized (from photos in the books) that some of our artifacts date to this time period -- I never would have discovered that had I not seen these books. They are highly informative and entertaining, and I am so happy I found them!
