Design and Cultural Politics in Postwar Britian: The

Design and Cultural Politics in Postwar Britian: The "Britain Can Make It" Exhibition of 1946

by Patrick Joseph Maguire, Jonathan M. Woodham

Editorial Reviews

Nine essays and a collection of documents intended as a working tool for students of the post-war period and in particular of design within the period. They discuss the textiles, pottery, and furniture industries in terms of the shifts in meaning and location during the transition from highly controlled wartime production to the more market-based structure that would become characteristic after the immediate reconstruction. Among the specific topics are the place of the exhibition in the history of design; patriotism, politics, and production; adapting utility furniture to peace-time production; and aesthetic idealism and economic reality. Distributed in the US by Books International. The CiP data shows the main title as Popular Politics and Design in Post-War Britain. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
