A unique and beautiful publication charting the history of the Bakelite radio in Australia. For the first time a photographic history from the '30s, '40s, and '50s, highlighting their art deco design and extraordinary range of colours. Impeccably researched by Peter Sheridan and Ritchie Singer, and published to the highest standards, this title will be a must for anyone interested in Australian social history, design, and nostalgia. This handsome production displays over 400 radios in colour on 230 pages. Advertisements and associated radio memorabilia also illustrate the changing social conditions of a colourful by-gone Australia.
