Released today is Marnie Fogg's new book on 1950s Fashion Prints. Marnie Fogg is the author behind both the vintage handbags book and the one about Sixties fashion boutiques, while this volume is the sister volume to her book on 1960s fashion print.
It's intended to act as a source of inspiration for design students and practitioners and its 192 pages are jammed full of designs from the key figures of the time such as Lucienne Day and Robert Stewart, as well as key companies such as Marimekko. The designs are grouped thematically by topics that influenced the designs of the period such as the influence of artists on fabric designs or novelty patterns. There's plenty on its pages to inspire a Fifties design enthusiast as well as appeal to those with a more expert interest.
Reasonably priced too. You can buy it for £12.99 from Amazon
