Book Summary

From the visually seductive E-Type Jaguar to Giles Gilbert Scott's iconic red telephone boxes, British design is distinguished by a combination of casual elegance with practical functionality, with often a touch of British eccentricity thrown in for good measure. Masterpieces of British Design surveys in detail one hundred landmark designs spanning a period of 250 years - from Industrial Revolution period Coalbrookdale ironwork, to William Mitchell's Spitfire, right up to the latest designs by today's most celebrated designers, including Ross Lovegrove, Jasper Morrison and Ron Arad. Each featured design is not only beautifully illustrated but also accompanied by authoritative descriptive information and an in-depth explanatory text.
