Review:

"[An] excellent and now classic introduction to modern design and twentieth-century modernism. . . ."-Christopher Menz, Australian Book Review

Synopsis:

Moving from William Morris to Walter Gropius, taking in artists and architects from Britain, Europe and the USA, the author shows how the foundation of the best that remains today was laid by a small group of people who thought and taught as well as designed. First published in 1936 and twice revised since then, this survey explores a period of major, exciting transition away from stale Victorian historicism to the 20th century and our modern machine age.
