40 Legends of New Zealand Design

Douglas Lloyd-Jenkins

Publisher:Random House New Zealand Ltd

This gorgeous book takes a look at the work of forty of New Zealand's leading designers and craftspeople of the twentieth century. Douglas Lloyd Jenkins, well known as a writer, lecturer and critic on design, has been writing columns for the magazine Home and Entertaining for the last 15 years, and this book gathers together some of his best columns, plus several new profiles. The format is a series of short, authoritative, highly accessible biographical profiles, detailing the careers of top New Zealand designers and craftspeople, from textile and wallpaper designers, to furniture, jewellery and industrial designers. The profiles are accompanied by the information necessary to identify the work of these creative people, and illustrated with a combination of new and original photographs. The design 'legends' covered include: * Reuben Watts, who worked in jewellery in the 1920s and 1930s. * Avis Higgs who designed textiles in the 1940s. * John Crichton and his interior designs of the 1950s-1970s. * Danske Mobler and furniture from the 1960s. * Levi Borgstrom, who carved wooden spoons in the 1970s. * Warren Tippett and his ceramics of the 1970s and 1980s.
