Liberty: The History

Treasures from the Archives of the Luxury Department Store
Marie-Therese Rieber

Description

This illustrated, official book charts the heritage and innovation of this individualistic department store.

Known for its unique, avant-garde design and unmistakeable Art Fabrics, Liberty is celebrated for its blend of bohemian luxury and expert craftsmanship. The author discusses not only the historic beginnings of the brand, from Arthur Liberty's 'Eastern Bazaar' to its Art Nouveau furniture, jewellery and clothing designs, whimsical window displays and the Art Fabrics, but also to the innovations in design and printmaking today that have kept Liberty at the forefront of the fashion and textile industries.

Since 1875, Liberty has been synonymous with luxury and great design. Arthur Liberty's intuitive vision and pioneering spirit led him to travel the world looking for individual pieces to inspire and excite his discerning clientele. Liberty is Arthur's legacy, and stands for integrity, value, quality and, above all, beautifully designed products. It is this vision and spirit that prevails today within the trademark Tudor building and this same vision and spirit is celebrated in this treasure trove of designs and objects from the store's archives and vaults.
