FANS have been around since the beginning of time. By the 19th century, fans were manufactured in every country in the world as devices to stir the air as well as used in fashion. Novelty Hand Fans Fashionable Functional Fun Accessories of the Past by Cynthia Fendel is the first book to take an in depth look at 19th and 20th century novelty fans. This new comprehensive and beautifully photographed book also educates readers about fans in general. Chapters cover topics such as “Floral Bouquet Fans”, “Parasol, Purse & Hat Fans”, “Compact Grooming & Perfume Fans”, “Cigar, Dagger & Pistol Fans”, “Mechanical Hand Fans” and "Fans Made With Unique Materials”. An entire chapter is devoted to “The Language of the Fan” with newly uncovered information and photographs about America’s fascination with a fan language. Cynthia Fendel has been collecting and researching hand fans for three decades and her love for novelty fans is apparent in this well researched book containing over 300 photos and illustrations. If you have an interest in fans, fashion or vintage clothing and accessories, Novelty Hand Fans Fashionable Functional Fun Accessories of the Past is the book for you! "New fan book provides shining content, variety" -Don Johnson, AntiquesWeek
