Design and popular entertainment

Christopher Frayling, Emily King, and Harriet Atkinson

Published by Manchester University Press

V and A RCA Studies in Design History Anthologies MUP

  • The essays address a series of core themes: the influence of modernity on design, the impact of technological change and the relationship between design and entertainment Every essay is based on original research and written in an accessible style, with an introductory essay in which the editors reflect on historical and theoretical background Until now, very little writing has linked forms of popular entertainment such as the theatre, television and film with design in any specific way Opens up an important new dimension in design history, but will also be of interest to cultural historians and those in film and theatre studies
