    The Sixties: a time of sexual and cultural liberation, the Space Age and a tremendous optimism. There were radical new fashions in clothes, lifestyle objects and architecture – and also the rediscovery of Victoriana and Art Nouveau. This is a collection of essays by the architects and designers who were there, including Peter Smithson, Patrick Hodgkinson and Jane Dillon, and historians such as Gavin Stamp and Lesley Jackson with fresh insights on those enthusiastic, mixed-up times.
