Format: Hardcover
This book is fantastic - from the funky layout to the fantastic images, facsimile copies of Gplan brochures and intelligent text providing social context and product development this handbook gives the reader everything to be able to recognise style, period and manufacturer for many product ranges. Anyone who thought G plan was boring - or for those of us who grew up surrounded by 60s and 70s interiors but never fully appreciated them at the time - should take the opportunity to grab this book with both hands - pour a Campari and Soda, park the Capri and luxuriate in retro fabulousness!

The book's design is fantastic! It help immerse you in the atmosphere of the period. Laid out like an old-fashioned furniture catalogue on thick matt paper. It comes complete with colour layouts from vintage magazines that show now G-Plan was used in the home.
