Published to accompany the Victoria & Albert Museum’s major exhibition in 1997 – see below the description from the dustwrapper flap, and the foreword.
Long out of print. The book was also published in paperback, but surely a book of this size and weight, intended to be referred to frequently, should only ever be published in hardback?
Beware – this is a large and heavy book and would cost a good deal to send abroad. If you are outside the U.K. and are thinking about buying it, please email us first on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will quote a price for postage.
