The G Plan Revolution

This book is a historical account of the development of vintage furniture design in the fifties and particularly the sixties. However, the emphasis is on an interesting and entertaining read for the popular market, rather than an academic textbook. The publication is also a good guide for the collector or anyone with an interest in vintage retro furniture. The "G Plan Revolution" is a colourful, hardback, packed with period advertisements from companies such as E Gomme Ltd and Ercol Furniture Ltd. It has instant appeal to anyone who remembers G Plan in its heyday, or those who have an interest in collecting furniture from the sixties or a general nostalgia for the era. This furniture book not only discusses G-Plan, including the history of E Gomme Ltd, but also many other furniture manufacturers of this period.
