Technological Innovation and the Decorative Arts
This booklet was issued in conjunction with a 1973 exhibition whose overall aim was to “explore the interplay of technology and design in the era of man's increasing exploitation of the machine." Chapters focus on Furniture, Wallpaper Printing, Guns, Clocks, Iron Casting, Textile Printing, Glass, and Silver. Each craft technique is contrasted with early technological processes. Black and white illustrations throughout the book demonstrate these contrasting methods.
