The 1951 Festival of Britain was a celebration of the end of post-war austerity and a showcase for British arts, science and trade for the future. This book examines the objects and printed ephemera produced to commemorate the Festival and features work by major designers, including the many variants of Abram Games’s Festival emblem.

The Design series presents introductions to some of the great names in British book design, illustration and typography. Each book is exceptionally well illustrated, with fine reproductions accompanied by a concise and informative essay on a designer’s career or a significant moment in the history of 20th-century design.
