Collecting the 20th Century
In this lavishly illustrated book, Adrian Franklin, writer, collector and TV presenter on the ABC's phenomenally successful show Collectors, takes a decade by decade approach to exploring the twentieth century - the architecture, fashion, design and everyday material culture. Covering popular periods such as Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Industrial Arts, Art Deco, Mid-Century, Retro, Modern, this book combines useful information with personal reflection in a lively and entertaining style.
A fantastic gift and the perfect companion for serious collectors. Over 150 objects, largely sourced from the Powerhouse Museum Collection.
