Ten separate chapters by ten renowned experts explore the various crafts that came out of this amazing school.

Derek Birdsall, Alan Fletcher /strong> and Colin Forbes are three more top-of-their-craft creators who graduated from the Central School. Also featured are the staff and students of the school, such as Terrance Conran, Margaret Pikington, Eduardo Paolozzi and Posy Simonds; the Bauhaus movement and shops such as Liberty's, whose influence both in spreading the school's philosophy and artistry through the high street has been considerable.
