    Notes: This visually stunning book, created for a major V&A exhibition, celebrates the best of British design from 1948 to today. Essays by leading curators as well as pieces by key designers--including Peter Saville, Barbara Hulanicki, Paul Smith, and Tom Dixon--build a comprehensive survey of more than 400 of the finest examples of fashion and textiles, furniture, ceramics and glass, theater design, graphics, photography, architecture, and fine art and sculpture from the period. From works commissioned for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II to the globally influential, and very British, counterculture, included here are works created for the 1960s boutiques of Mary Quant and Ossie Clark through the club cultures of punk, the new Romantics, and rave. Very nice clean, tight copy. Slight shelfwear on dust jacket. Brodart wrapped.

    Notes: First edition first impression 2012. 400 pages. Illustrated in colour throughout. Cloth. Near fine in dustjacket with some very minor edge-wear to head of spine. This landmark book celebrates the best of British design, documenting the transformation and impact of designers' work over the years between the post-war 'Austerity Games' of 1948 and the 2012 Olympics. As well as essays by leading curators and commentators, British Design incorporates pieces by key practitioners (including Peter Saville, Barbara Hulanicki, Paul Smith and Tom Dixon) to build a comprehensive survey of over 350 of the finest examples of 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, counter-culture, from the sixties boutiques of Mary Quant and Ossie Clark through to the club cultures of Punk, the New Romantics and Rave.
