Edwardian Scrapbook A3 Size
For the first time, the full colour impact of the Edwardian era comes back to life with the posters, packs, song sheets, souvenirs, newspapers, magazines, comics, toys and games. But it was the innovative picture postacrd that caught the mood of the moment - the saucy seaside scene, the humour of motoring accidents, the craze for ping pong, diabolo and rinking, the aggitation of the suffragette movement, with it's prediction of a women speaker in the House of Commons and women cabinet ministers by 1978.
The Edwardian Scrapbook has drawn together over 1,300 images selected from the Robert Opie Collection which creates a remarkable insight into British life from Edward VII's accesion in 1901 to his death in 1910. This was the era that first saw teddy bears and Peter Rabbit, Meccano and Plasticine, Marmite and Perrier Water, The Daily Mirror and Daily Sketch, the Boy Scout movement and the birth of aviation.
A perfect coffee table book that is sure to raise thought and discussion.
