Liberty & Co in the Fifties and Sixties: A Taste for Design
Liberty & Co in the Fifties and Sixties: A Taste for Design covers a fascinating era of our store’s development – it features a cornucopia of dazzling prints and patterns, along with a guide to the intriguing mid-century history behind them.
Founded in 1875, Liberty London (previously known as Liberty & Co and Liberty’s) has been at the forefront of fashion and the decorative arts for over 140 years. This book, written by our very own archivist Anna Buruma, focuses on the Liberty emporium of the mid-20th century – from the post-war frugality and traditionalism of the ‘50s, to Liberty’s dramatic flowering within the Carnaby Street scene of the Swinging Sixties a decade later. A must-read for Liberty-lovers and style historians of all stripes.
