Book Description:
The work of the artists belonging to the Camden Town School and Euston Road Group is well recorded but until now, no work of substance on the many hundreds of teachers and students who flocked to Camberwell during the post-war years has been published. With the publication of Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts Geoff Hassell has produced a valuable record of a unique period in British art. Victor Pasmore, William Coldstream and John Minton were among the charismatic teachers who attracted so many talented students, including mature ex-servicemen, to study at Camberwell. Many of the painters to emerge from this fertile period have since become household names, such as Terry Frost, Anthony Eyton and Euan Uglow. Many have yet to be discovered and their work, painterly and decorative, characteristic and wholly redolent of the time and place, is a credit to the scope and range of the influences exerted by the School. This book provides an essential and indispensable point of reference for all collectors of 20th century British art. As well as a brief history of the School and a dictionary section, containing biographical details of over 300 pupils and teachers of the period, 'Memories of Camberwell', a selection of students' reminiscences, emphasises their enthusiasm and inspiration.

Book Description:
Craft practice has a rich history and remains vibrant, sustaining communities while negotiating cultures within local or international contexts. More than two centuries of industrialization have not extinguished handmade goods; rather, the broader force of industrialization has redefined and continues to define the context of creation, deployment and use of craft objects. With object study at the core, this book brings together a collection of essays that address the past and present of craft production, its use and meaning within a range of community settings from the Huron Wendat of colonial Quebec to the Girls? Friendly Society of twentieth-century England. The making of handcrafted objects has and continues to flourish despite the powerful juggernaut of global industrialization, whether inspired by a calculated refutation of industrial sameness, an essential means to sustain a cultural community under threat, or a rejection of the imposed definitions by a dominant culture. The broader effects of urbanizing, imperial and globalizing projects shape the multiple contexts of interaction and resistance that can define craft ventures through place and time. By attending to the political histories of craft objects and their makers, over the last few centuries, these essays reveal the creative persistence of various hand mediums and the material debates they represented.

Book Description:
The London County Council was a the world's largest municipal government and a laboratory for social experimentation before the Great War. It sought to master the problems of metropolitan amelioration, political economy and public culture. Pennybacker's social history tests the vision of London Progressivism against its practitioners' accomplishments. She argues that the historical memory of the hopes inspired by LCC achievement and the disillusions spawned by failure, are potent forces in today's deeply ambivalent responses to metropolitan politics in London. The `new women', bohemian London, scandal in the building industry, midwifery, lodging houses, children's provision and the music hall were all provocative issues in LCC work. Their story richly evokes life in the turn-of-the-century metropolis and illustrates the complexities of `municipal socialism'.
