"Camouflage and Art" was inspired by the discovery that so many designers in wartime camouflage had been alumni of the Royal College of Art. Basing the research for her book on Ministry of Defence records, Royal College of Art archives and help from the families of wartime 'camoufleurs', Henrietta Goodden explores the development of the extraordinary ideas which were to play such an important part in defeating the enemy in the air, on land and at sea. Among the names in wartime camouflage to become famous in other walks of life were Basil Spence, architect, Oliver Messel, designer, Edward Seago, painter and Hugh Casson, architect, later to become President of the Royal Academy of Arts.
