People have been submitting vintage snapshots of their mothers to Piper Weiss since early 2009. The author publishes them on her blog of the same name in homage to fashionable mums from across the globe. Her first book features two hundred colour photographs of mums sporting the styles of the times with pizzazz – pixie cuts, glamorous updos, hot pants, jumpsuits, mod frocks and retro accessories galore. Each photo comes with a personal anecdote; proof that our mums often led quite eventful and adventurous lives, and very stylish ones at that.
