This is a bluffer's guide to the design criticism and commentary of the 20th century, providing an entertaining summary of the key design texts of the last hundred years. Yet this collection goes further than simply listing the design classics: it also puts design in context and demonstrates the impact and relevance of design values on contemporary living.

It is written in an accessible, provocative and entertaining style. Conway Lloyd Morgan has published books on leading 20th century designers, including Philippe Starck and Jean Nouvel and edited the 'International Design Yearbook'.

This is the second in the Architectural Press series of Reader's Guides, comprised of reviews of seminal texts on design in the 20th century.

*Condensed summary of the most important design books saves you research time and effort.

*Cut through the abstract and be taken straight to the key points by the witty and controversial style of Morgan.
