Eyewear: a Visual History

Moss Lipow, the sunglass designer, presents his best designs in his world renowned book titled Eyewear: a Visual History. In the book, there is a wide range of models, e.g., prehistoric Eskimo goggles, spectacles of riveted wood from the 13th century, medieval spectacles with leather straps, hand spectacles from the 19th century, pince-nez, monocle goggles, aviator sunglasses, and mods of Godard frames.

The evolution of optics is fascinating because what once was something practical has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry, i.e. from glasses for the visually impaired to glasses worn to make a fashion statement. In Eyewear: a Visual History, there are a variety of sources, e.g., old magazines, treaties, and discontinued publications, that talk about the evolution of glasses.


In Eyewear: a Visual History, five hundred years of history of glasses and more than 1000 models of glasses are covered.

About the Author: 

Moss Lipow is a New York designer and collector of eyewear. He was not trained in the design of eyewear; in fact, Lipow studed at New York University's film school. Thus, he has a visual arts background which helped him in creating eccentric and very unique sunglasses. His designs are very expensive, e.g., a pair of alligator leather glasses are priced at $3,8000. Lipow has one of the largest collection of vintage 20th century eyewear in the world. By and large, his inspiration comes from early rock n' rollers.


Mr. Lipow has worked with top fashion editorial stylists. His creations have been published in magazines around the world, e.g., Newsweek, Vogue Italy, Vogue Japan, W and L'Officiel. His line of optics is sold all over the world.


Hope you enjoyed a brief introduction into the optical world of Mr. Moss Lipow and his book on the history of glasses- Eyewear: a Visual History! Xoxo!
