The D.I.A. Cautionary Guide to Oxford.

(Bawden.) WILLIAMS-ELLIS (Clough, Introduction)

The D.I.A. Cautionary Guide to Oxford.

Description: FIRST EDITION, Edward Bawden vignette to title-page, illustrated with photographs of the town, pp. 32, crown 8vo, original sewn wrappers, a little toned and lightly dustsoiled overall, light crease to bottom corner of front, very good

Publication Details: D.I.A. (The Design and Industries Association), 1930

Notes: Scarce. Notable for the unrecorded Bawden vignette depicting modern advertising against the dreaming spires - the drawing is unsigned, but is patently Bawden's work. An assessment of contemporary Oxford from the point of view of architectural design - a mostly damning one.
