Pioneers of Modern Design, Nikolaus Pevsner
The history of the Modern Movement in architecture and design was an almost unknown field until Professor Pevsner first published his Pioneers in 1936. This soon came to be recognized as the standard work on the subject and was revised and enlarged in 1949 and has been again revised and partly rewritten for this Pelican edition.
Sir Nikolaus Pevsner tells the exciting story of how the efforts of a relatively small group of men lifted our visual concepts away from stale Victorian Historicism and infused them once more with honesty, fitness of purpose and contemporary expression. He shows how the foundation of the best that surrounds us today was laid then by men who thought and taught as well as designed.
