XMas 2021

Happy holidays 2021!

This year’s showcase is dedicated to the Nativity and to the release of our latest book about the history of eyewear in Japan.

“Japan on the nose. The Shogun’s glasses and the mystery revealed” is the first world publication in Italian and English that tells how glasses arrived in Japan through the Jesuits and how they evolved to adapt to the face of the Japanese. A publication dedicated to the curious of the history and progress of an object created primarily for eye protection around the year 1000 BC.

The book consists of 252 pages and 215 color images for a cost of 21.00 euros.

We also thank Miranda who, despite the visual difficulties, with the help of the electronic video-enlarger, produced by hand all the wonderful aerial decorations in our shop windows. A warm thank you, Miranda!
