New British Design softback by John Thackara printed and bound in Japan 1986.
The avant-garde in New British Design has become notable for its rejection of traditional categories: it is crossing and re-crossing the boundaries between architecture, interiors, product design, craft and fashion, and taking art forms out of the gallery to provide new inspiration and energy. Nearly 90 designers, working in every field from furniture to fashion, are represented in 80 pages of spectacular color. All the early hits are here: Tom Dixon, Leigh Bowery etc. Jacket shows some scuffs and minor bumps.
