«An enthralling overview of the astonishing artistic skill of the leading lifestyle illustrators of the period, Lifestyle Illustration of the 50s reveals the changing social aspirations of the post-war generation and their growing optimism for the future. Featuring over 1,000 beautiful and stylistically diverse illustrations, this volume charts the decade’s progression as the new younger generation emerged from post-war austerity to shape a new, more aspirational culture. From stylish and urbane young couples in romantic clinches to professional men and women exploring their new-found affluence and growing independence, this book provides an unsurpassed insight into the changing styles, fashions, dreams and social mores of the Fifties. The Fifties was an era of forward-looking optimism, and the hopes and desires of these postwar years were elegantly captured in the stunning artwork of the period. Lifestyle Illustration of the 50s is an extensive gallery of spectacular rediscovered and restored artwork, much of it by the most talented artists of the day. An informative introduction explores the history of this long overlooked art form and places it within the wider social context. Lifestyle Illustration of the 50s provides a nostalgic trip into a world of Mid-Century Modern living, in the process revealing just how much our lifestyles have changed over the intervening years».
