Fun of the Fifties: Ads, Fads and Fashion, Hardback (May 2016)
Looking back at everything from the house and home to music and holidays, this celebration of one of the most memorable eras will take all those baby-boomers back to days of 1950s childhood innocence that should never be forgotten.
1910s Scrapbook, Hardback (May 2009)
Retrospectively, we see the time of the 1910s being invaded with the images of the First World War, and yet in the early years of that decade people were focussed on events at home, whether King George V's coronation or the women involved in the suffragette movement. This book brings a fresh focus to this pivotal moment of the twentieth century.
1920s Scrapbook, Hardback (February 2008)
Features over 1,000 colourful images, and attempts to bring to life the 1920s and capture the mood of this decade in Great Britain.
