Description
'The first time that post-war design in Britain has been portrayed in such detail - a must for design students.' The Independent This landmark book celebrates the best of British design, documenting the transformation of Britain's design landscape since 1948. Alongside essays by leading curators and commentators, British Design From 1948 presents the work of key practitioners (including Alexander McQueen, Terence Conran, Barbara Hulanicki, Paul Smith and Tom Dixon) to build a comprehensive survey of the finest fashion and textiles, furniture, ceramics and glass, theatre design, graphics, photography, architecture, fine art and sculpture from this period. In addition to discussing works commissioned for official purposes, including the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and the Festival of Britain, the book highlights the globally influential, and very British, counterculture, from the Sixties boutiques of Mary Quant and Ossie Clark through to the club cultures of Punk, the New Romantics and Rave. - from Amzon
