Founded in 1875, Liberty of London has long been synonymous with all that is most stylish in fashion and decor. Calloway, a historian of design and decoration and author of several titles on the decorative arts ( 20th-Century Decoration , Rizzoli, 1988), here treats long-term shopping patterns at this key retailer as cultural history. Liberty's influences on 20th-century design are detailed by subject specialists, who discuss textiles, costume, furniture, metalwork, ceramics, and glass. The house's impact on tastes during its early years; the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco periods; the Revivalism of the 1950s and 1960s; and today are also examined. This beautifully photographed book is recommended for decorative arts collections in large public and academic libraries.
