From Library Journal:
This book is an expanded (and less historically oriented) version of a 1987 study highlighting the work of graduates and staff of the Royal College of Art (RCA) in London. It is also more focused on postwar design than its title implies. The RCA is the oldest publicly funded art and design school in the world, and it is also the only exclusively postgraduate college in the field. In this catalog, Frayling, rector of the RCA, author (Sergio Leone, LJ 6/15/00), and radio and television personality, showcases the college!s creative output in the fine arts, furniture and industrial design, fashion, textiles, illustration, calligraphy, and communications (animation, graphic design, film, and television). Readers familiar with the work of Henry Moore or David Hockney, who admire the lines of a Bentley Continental, or who have seen the movies Blade Runner, Alien, or The Full Monty will have encountered a small portion of the RCA!s genius. Well illustrated (full color and captioned) and well laid out, this book would be a great addition to any design library."Margarete Gross, Chicago P.L.
