Christopher Dresser – A Design Revolution

Dresser (1834-1904) was a pioneer in his field - the reshaping of British design in the last century. An exact contemporary of William Morris, Dresser was the first independent industrial designer, embracing the machine as a means to raise standards of design for the mass market. He was in effect the inventor of the modern profession of product designer, radical in its time and still relevant today. This book includes hundreds of colour images and essays on his legacy.
