Nigel Whiteley’s examination of the implications of Pop for British design theory and practice over this period is unique, for this is the first book to look at Pop design seriously and thoroughly. His approach is broad based and, at times, provocative – reflecting his belief that, after Pop, it is meaningless to speak of ‘good design’ without qualifying the social, cultural and theoretical context. With over 100 photographs ranging from Beatles memorabilia and plastic chairs to Biba interiors and paper dresses, this book is a thoughtful appraisal of an influential period in our recent past that is much illustrated but all too little understood.
