The subject of the Margaret Howell calendar 2019 is Design Folios from The Council of Industrial Design, selected from The University of Brighton Design Archives.
In 1948, the first Design Folios appeared amid the surge of educational initiates set out by The Council of Industrial Design. The Folios were available by subscription, providing a steady flow of design information to schools and colleges throughout the country.
The Folios promoted many examples of new design from dinner-trays to dinghies, Ercol furniture and sporting equipment.
PROFITS FROM THE SALE OF THE CALENDAR WILL BE DONATED TO OPEN-CITY.
