A History of British Design 1830–1970

The story of how the British, against all the odds, became design-conscious. It begins with the 1830s, when people first began to realize that British design standards were in need of reformation, and continues up to 1970, when the government-supported Design Council was well-established, the British system of design education had become the envy of the rest of Europe, and the general level of design appreciation had increased beyond all recognition.
