From the DJ."The first serious book on a period just beginnning to be researched by scholars and little known to collectors, it focuses on 200 of the finest objects from the most important designers and artists of the time. Renowned historian Paul Johnson has writted a thought-provoking essay on the political background of the years 1935-1965, and each chapter opens with an insightful examination into each style. The individual entries, by noted experts in the fields of furniture, ceramics, glass, textiles, metalwork, and graphic design, present a wealth of information on the works as well as an understanding of their techniques. Detailed biographies of all the designers and histories of the companies responsible for creating the objects make this book an invaluable reference tool."
