Summary

Design in Australia 1880-1970, an investigation of design issues spanning almost 100 years of Australian design history, explores a wide range of design experiences. Michael Bogle draws on poets, painters, educators, critics, museum curators, journalists, publishers, architects, industrialists and others to illustrate the vitality of the discipline. The book discusses such topics as Aboriginality and design, Australian design books and magazines, fabrics and interior furnishings, design retailing, motor cars, radios, agricultural implements, and many other examples of design and production.
