British Prints from the Machine Age: Rhythms of Modern Life 1914 - 1939 was edited by Clifford S.Ackley and published by Thames & Hudson in 2008. It was published alongside the exhibition "Rhythms of Modern Life: British Prints, 1914-1939" organised by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The Metropolitan Museum of Art which both hosted the exhibition in 2008. 

"British Prints of the Machine Age examines the impact of avant-garde Continental influences on British printmaking from the First World War to the outbreak of the Second. Highlighting works by thirteen artists, it focuses in particular on the dynamic imagery of C. R. W. Nevinson, Paul Nash, Edward Wadsworth and David Bomberg (early followrs of ITalian Futurism and British Vorticism) and on the works of Claude Flight, Sybil Andrews, Cyril Power and Lill Tschidi, all artists associated with the Grosvenor School."

Please note that these books are preloved, so may have some imperfections, and we'd like to celebrate that with you! 

Our favourite pastime is rummaging through shelves of books for interesting and unique publications, and so our range of secondhand and vintage books is cherry-picked by MIMMO Studios co-founders Katie & Lil in collaboration with our local Oxfam Bookshop in Cheltenham.
