The Sixties by Lesley Jackson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Concentrates on the design and architecture of the 1960s, this book traces the transition from the "Contemporary" design of the 1950s to the pure geometry of "the look" and the styles that proliferated throughout the momentous events of the decade to the proto-high tech developments of the 1970s. In all fields of design - architecture, ceramics, glass, textiles and furniture - the popular cultural explosion and the consumer boom generated visually stunning and colourful images and fashions. Products of the most prominent designers and manufacturers are shown in contemporary photographs and advertisements from the period.
