Anyone with an interest in post-war British furniture will want to check out The G-Plan Revolution: 1952 – 1970 by Basil Hyman and Steven Braggs, which is available to buy in hardback.

The book is a celebration of British mass market furniture of the period (not just G-Plan), taking a light (rather than academic) look at the subject, mixing history, nostalgia, period advertisements and of course, images of the furniture itself – making it ideal as a reference guide, as well as a cool book to have on your (G-Plan) coffee table. It even has a great retro cover, designed to look like an old catalogue – in fact, there’s also a couple of old catalogues included in the book.

It’s an area that’s certainly on the up – we highlighted G-Plan some time back as something to invest in and if you need anymore convincing, pick up a copy of this – available at Amazon for £21.
