W. W. Norton & Company. Paperback. 0393313654 Book Description The story of the zipper is the triumph of an ingenious novelty over the pra ctical world. It is almost impossible to imagine modern life without this d evice; yet for the first thirty years or so, from its patent in the late ni neteenth century, it represented no real advantage over traditional fastene rs like the hook-and-eye or the old-fashioned button. The zipper was mechan ically awkward, liable to rust, liable to fail (i.e., snag or burst open), and so expensive that it doubled the retail price of a skirt or a pair of p ants. But from the beginning the zipper had an allure, a mystery, a kind of sex appeal that would be echoed in songs, poems, and popular novels. Robert Friedel has written a fascinating history?full of strange twi sts, paradoxes, and interesting characters?of this signature gadget of the twentieth century. Inventor Whitcomb Judson (whose efforts lay mostl y in patenting a doomed undertaking known as the Pneumatic Streetcar) gave the zipper life; businessman Colonel Lewis Walker had the capital and the f aith to back it for forty years; and cultural icons such as Marlon Brando, Erica Jong, and the Rolling Stones helped to turn it into a symbol for sexu ality and style. Not just the story of a distinctive technology, Zipper is an entertaining, informative examination of how new things become part of our daily lives, s haping how we think and act. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly How the ingenious zipper, a newfangled, unwanted novelty, became a ubiquitous part of daily life is the story told in this engaging chronicle peopled by a colorful cast of characters.

It is almost impossible to imagine modern life without this device; yet for the first thirty years or so, from its patent in the late nineteenth century, it represented no real advantage over traditional fasteners like the hook-and-eye or the old-fashioned button.
