Credits & Stuff:
This site was made for entertainment purposes only. I don't sell shoes or clothes of any sort, nor do I promote any company that does. This is a personal project constructed as a way to learn web design and in the end taught me a whole lot about shoes, fashion and history along with it. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed making it.
I consulted a variety of books and websites to gather all of the information in my timeline.
20,000 Years of Fashion by Francois Boucher ~ 1987
Daily Life in Medieval Times, Frances and Joseph Gies ~ 1990
Kings and Queens of Europe, David Williamson ~
Kings and Queens of Britain, David Williamson ~ 1986
The History of Art, H. W. Janson ~ 1982
The Historical Encyclopedia of Costumes, Albert Racinet ~ 1988
The Horizon Book of the Elizabethan World, Lucey Baldwin Smith ~ 1967
Shoes, Linda O'Keeffe ~1996
I've visited so many sites during the making of my timeline that it is hardly possible to remember them all. I had all intentions of keeping track and writing it all down. So much for good intentions. All artwork is from
The Web Gallery of Art which is a wonderful site full of beautiful, high resolution images of paintings.
Many of the beautiful shoe photos are from the Vintage Fashion Guild. Check it out shoe and fashion lovers! They have some great info available.
Got any comments? Corrections? Suggestions? How about a submission for one of my shoe galleries or some good old fashioned hate mail?
Email me! Tell me what you think!
Happy Shoe Shopping!
