Great reference book and well illustrated with excellent reproduction of the original adverts as I remember them! What a brilliant nostalgic trip. A brilliant book for those of us who insist on keeping the look!
... on Ivy style from the English point of view, a movement that has only been explored in a handful of print and online essays until now.
The enthusiasm and knowledge of Messrs Marsh and Gaul shines through this highly readable little book, and they are not afraid to pronounce the occasional idiosyncratic and personal view. Many colour illustrations and old advertisements make this a book to dip into time and time again.
For anyone even remotely interested in the style and where it ties into mid-century design, jazz, graphic art and London, this will be an enjoyable and worthwhile read.
