Reviews

"This slender, almost pamphlet-sized book is chock-full of British modernism of the 1940s, with plenty of photographs and an erudite text... authors Paul Evans and Peter Doyle, an antiques dealer and a military historian who usually work together on Shire's books about World War II, have given this volume an informative, well-researched text that flows along with the photographs." --Sandy McLendon, Modernism Magazine"Lavishly illustrated with photographs, ephemera and wonderful period advertisements, all three of these books take one through a good overview of British architectural design, house construction, furnishings and decor, and gardens." --Kitchen Retro, kitchenretro.blogspot.com (October 2009) on 1930s Home, 1940s Home and 1950s Home
