Miller's Collecting The 1970s is structured thematically. After an introduction and timeline highlighting important events of the decade, it is split into three sections. Homestyle features items from furniture, ceramics, and glass, to the latest technology and kitchenware. Fashion covers everything from the nostalgic revival of old prints and patterns, embroidered flares, and platform shoes to punk style, plus the boom in costume jewellery. Leisure looks at toys and dolls, rock and pop, film, and books, covering Happy Days memorabilia, chopper bikes, Bowie, and Clockwork Orange among much else. There is also an international directory of useful addresses of dealers and auction houses, and a bibliography including handy website Reference. From the shimmering lurex of the disco age to the floral prints of Laura Ashley, Collecting The 1970s explores the leading trend-setters of the decade through their creations.
