If you like Scandinavian design, and you want something to keep you amused over Christmas, why not treat yourself to a copy of Scandinavian Design by Charlotte & Peter Fiell.
This book covers Scandinavian design from 1900 to the present day, illustrating all areas of design, including furniture, glass, ceramics, textiles, jewellery, lighting, industrial and product design.
It has lots of great pictures, which makes it a good coffee table book to browse in and out of. It features the designers in alphabetical order, so is also great for reference, as it has brief biography of each designer, along with brief history of Scandinavian design in each country.
If you like to discover treasures at car boot sales or junk shops, it is invaluable to help you find out what you’ve got.
It is great value as you get 704 pages of design history for only £13.59 at Amazon.
