Design Festival of Britain 1951.


Antique Collectors' Club. 2007..

First edition; 8vo; original decorated boards and dust jacket. The major events of the Festival were focused around the 27 acre bomb site around Waterloo Station. The Festival was immediately unfashionable amongst commentators. It was viewed with suspicion by political conservatives and quickly dismantled. This attitude towards the Festival was confounded by its popularity amongst collectors, social historians and anybody interested in post-war British culture and society. This book is the first to present the story of the Festival of Britain, through its souvenirs. Fine in fine dust jacket. Price £15.00
