Series: Sticker books
By Laura Cowan
WARNING! Not suitable for children under 36 months because of small parts. Choking hazard.
From shoulder pads to spandex, New Romantics to ravers, experience (or re-experience) the Eighties with this humorous sticker book. There are fashions from throughout the decade – from power dressing, leg warmers and blazers to big hair and prom dresses. Notes, photographs and links to video clips explain each 'look' and add historical context.
Laura studied literature at Cambridge and more literature at Trinity College Dublin. This means she’s read a lot of books, which helps when writing them. Before joining Usborne, she taught English in Barcelona for four years, as well as in Dublin and Cambridge. She now lives in East London with some plants and a lot of vintage clothes.
