Description

This publication will be a historical account of the development of furniture in the fifties and particularly the sixties. However, the emphasis will be on an interesting and entertaining read for the popular market, rather than an academic textbook. The publication will also be a good guide for the collector. The G0Plan Revolution is a colourful, hardback, packed with period advertisements. It will have instant appeal to anyone who remembers G-Plan in its heyday, or those who have an interest in collecting furniture from the sixties or a nostalgia for the era.
