Travis Elborough, ‘one of country’s finest pop culture historians’ (the Guardian) discusses his eye-opening new history of spectacles, from their inception as primitive visual aids for monkish scribes right through to today’s designer eyewear and the augmented reality of Google Glass. Along the way are encounters with ingenious medieval glassmakers, myopic Renaissance rulers, Samuel Pepys and Dr Johnson, popstars, movie stars, feminist icons and literary heroes – both fictional and real. A visionary examination of what might just be humanity’s greatest invention.
