This review is from: 1950s Fashion Prints (Hardcover)
This book really is splendid - lovely texturised jacket and sumptuously illustrated. The inside of it doesn't disappoint either. The 50s are really in right now, with Mad Men being so popular on TV and countless films being set in the same period. This book satisfies any desire you might have to wallow in the gorgeousness of 50s fabric and textile designs. You can really imagine Don Draper having a meeting with a Lucienne Day wallpaper in the background!
Marnie Fogg writes accessibly and engagingly on the subject and takes you through this period of innovative and exciting design in a lively style. Highly recommended!
