Fun of the Fifties: Ads, Fads and Fashion by Robert Opie Fun of the Fifties: Ads, Fads and Fashion, Hardback (May 2016)

Looking back at everything from the house and home to music and holidays, this celebration of one of the most memorable eras will take all those baby-boomers back to days of 1950s childhood innocence that should never be forgotten.

1910s Scrapbook by Robert Opie 1910s Scrapbook, Hardback (May 2009)

This book brings a fresh focus to this pivotal moment of the twentieth century.
