eBay items

Finding time to sit at the computer and input all the information always seems to get pushed to the back of the queue. Anyway, I am sure that you will find the new […]

The technological upheaval of the Industrial Revolution had transformed Victorian Britain from a largely agrarian and rural society into a country with many urban conurbations and workers often enduring terrible conditions and mindless repetitive work. From the 1850’s John Ruskin had championed the plight of the worker and denounced British society as being based on a greed that created misery in inverse proportion. He advocated raising the lot of the working class and thus society […]

Arthur Lasenby Liberty and Archibald Knox – The Liberty Style

Few people can claim to have been quite so influential in the history of modern design as Arthur Lasenby Liberty.
