Not only is collecting Mid Century/Retro/Vintage FUN!.....but so is reading about it.
So I thought I'd share some gems with you.
A 50's classic!
Made by Woolworths for the domestic market, designer chic at a budget price. I love this dinnerware, apparently the red one featured on the cover is rare and only distributed in Australia.Eyes are pealed!!
A Woman in a Man's world!
UK Ceramic Designer, love the Art Deco patterns on her wares and she had an affair with a married man...saucy minx!
An Australian Treat!
This book was put together by a married couple, very knowledgeable Design enthusiasts and very passionate about Australian Mid Century!
Lots of lovely images on real authentic homes, not too styled but hey! Who doesn't love that?
Also an Ercol on the front cover...I'm swooning!
How to do Mid Century!
Great book on American and Scandinavian Design classics...reader beware because this book may incite an attack on your piggy bank!
This is the book I'm taking to the Architect when Mr ouchflower says "Honey, we have won big on the races!"
Print Pattern Print Pattern!
Endless, great images of wondrous colour, shape, line, point and pattern!
