Synopsis: An enthralling overview of the astonishing artistic skill of the leading lifestyle illustrators of the period, Lifestyle Illustration of the 1950s reveals the changing social aspirations of the post-war generation and their growing optimism for the future. Featuring over 1,000 beautiful and stylistically diverse illustrations, this volume charts the decade's progression as the new younger generation emerged from post-war austerity to shape a new, more aspirational culture. From stylish and urbane young couples in romantic clinches to professional men and women exploring their new-found affluence and growing independence, this book provides an unsurpassed insight into the changing styles, fashions, dreams and social mores of the Fifties. The Fifties was an era of forward-looking optimism, and the hopes and desires of these postwar years were elegantly captured in the stunning artwork of the period.
Lifestyle Illustration of the 1950s is an extensive gallery of spectacular rediscovered and restored artwork by the most talented graphic artists of the day. An informative introduction explores places this long overlooked art form within the wider social context of the period, and in the process reveals how much our lifestyles have changed over the intervening years.
