The Royal College of Art, one of the world's most influential schools of art and design, has been associated with many internationally renowned figures during its 100-year history. In this elegantly produced volume, artists and designers -- including David Hockney, James Dyson, and Ridley Scott -- describe the importance of the College to their art, while subsequent chapters examine the work of the principal figures and movements associated with the RCA. Finally, full-color catalog spreads demonstrate the century's artistic progress across every field of fine art, design, and communications, from the Arts and Crafts Movement to the Post-Modernism of the 1990s. Christopher Frayling is Professor of Cultural History at the RCA; among his many books are The Face of Tutankhamun, Spaghetti Westerns, and the highly successful Art Pack.
