Recommended by Heywood Hill Reader Sarah Griffin
'In this anthology of her immensely readable, thoughtful writings, design historian Tanya Harrod moves adeptly between the subjects of art, craft, design, politics and contemporary culture. Perfect for random dipping, or for a more extended appreciation of the brilliant succession from one essay to the next. Favourites include "Why shouldn't a pot be as beautiful as a painting?"'
