"Chenoune, the editor of Carried Away, and Olivier Saillard, the curator of the accompanying exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Europe's leading fashion and design museum, have organized the unimaginable wealth of bags into several categories. The chapter discussing domestic bags explains the relationship of bags in the contemporary world to those of other cultures and antiquity. In the chapter exploring travelers' bags, the rich variety of this type is discussed, including messengers' bags, knapsacks, wineskins, nomads' sacks, bags for supplies, the 'auto' bag of the 1920s, the 'Gladstone' and the humble tote. Bags for professionals are also considered, including survey bags carried by postmen, plumbers, and other craftsmen, but also, medieval messengers' boxes, seamen's duffles, soldier's leather cartridge bags, and an overview of the design, leatherwork, and production of bags. The chapter devoted to bags as talismans celebrates the cross cultural, psychological, sexual, mythical, and shamanistic significance of bags ranging from Pre-Columbian ritual objects, to pilgrims' bags from the Middle Ages and Native American cosmogony bags. Carried Away surveys the surprising evolution of the useful commonplace bag into a high fashion totem, and suggests that, chameleon-like, the bag continues to change its form and adapt itself to new circumstances and uses." "The Illustrations are gathered from an equally wide variety of sources and media, including traditional fashion photography, decorative arts, painting, ethnographic collections, military museums, and private collections." --Book Jacket.

Revenge is best served bold. When Beverly Laborde becomes a con artist to exact revenge on the man who shut down her grandmother's antiques business and sent her to an early grave, she comes face to face with the handsome but haunted Vermont police detective, Adam Dutton—who doesn’t know whether to arrest her or ask her out on a date. Yet, what started as a personal vendetta for Beverly against whose a man whose criminal tendrils reach far into Vermont politics and the Northeastern Antiquities League grows into something more. The quirky town of Ironwood Junction, a sympathetic local antiques dealer, and the mysterious "Mr.X" start to chip away at Beverly's hardened outer emotional shell. But can she push past her issues with trust and betrayal to settle down? And will her quest for vengeance ever truly be over? As Beverly and Adam come to terms with their inconvenient growing attraction toward each other, they have to dodge bribery, theft, extortion, and murder ... to settle old scores and to keep each other safe. Includes: STEAL AWAY: A con woman hoping to take revenge on the man she feels responsible for her grandmother's death has to fight her growing attraction for a handsome Vermont police detective and the efforts of her nemesis to silence her ... forever. But if she can allow herself to trust her instincts—and the detective—she might just have a fighting chance. HIDE AWAY: Vermont Detective Adam Dutton has to make one of the hardest arrests of his life—his good friend and godfather, Harlan Wilford, who stands accused of murder. Once again teaming up with con woman Beverly Laborde, Adam and Beverly must find the real killer before it's too late for Harlan...and for them. BURN AWAY: When a series of arsons targets Vermont antiques stores, Detective Adam Dutton and con-woman Beverly Laborde worry a shop owned by their friend might be next. But the stakes take an even deeper and uglier turn after a body is found inside one of the burned buildings. Was it an accident, suicide ... or murder?
