“For lovers of pop art, Twiggy, the Beatles and everything retro, this book is mecca... Enough to turn the most stringent modernist into a hippy, this is the ultimate guide to the sixties." - Homes and Living, Sydney
Sixties Design provides a richly illustrated survey of a remarkable decade. The text reviews the period through certain all-important themes—the Modernist continuum, pop culture, space age styles, utopian ambitions and ‘anti-design, identifying the impact of new thinking on every area of design. Embracing a wide variety of media, and making connections between domestic and industrial design, graphics, film, fashion, architecture and city planning, the illustrations highlight the best design examples of the decade.
