The determinedly forward-looking optimism of postwar Europe and America was nowhere more evidenced than in the magazine art of the 1950s. In cheery scenes of domestic harmony, of strong-jawed men and winsome women, the illustration arts declared that the wartime years of austerity and uncertainty were at an end and a sunnier, more aspirational culture was taking shape. Featuring over 1,000 beautiful and stylistically diverse illustrations, Lifestyle Illustration of the 50s charts the decade's progression as western economies started to recover and youth culture began to assert itself in the market place. From stylish and urbane young couples in romantic clinches to professional men and women exploring their new-found affluence and economic independence, this book provides expert insight into the evolving styles, fashions, dreams and social mores of the 1950s, through an extensive gallery of rediscovered and restored artwork by some of the decade's finest illustrators. An informative introduction explores the history of this long overlooked art form and orients its impact within wider social trends. Lifestyle Illustration of the 50s provides a nostalgic trip into a world of midcentury modern living.
