Festival of Britain 1951, originals!

Posted on Feb 13, 2014 in News

Came across these two original catalogues from the Festival of Britain 1951. One is for the Science Pavilion and the other the Festival Ship Campania. The Festival of Britain emblem – the Festival Star – was designed by Abram Games for the cover. Both catalogues belonged to my father, Eric Charles Gardiner, a young exhibition designer working on the Science Pavilion under the direction of Ronald Dickens and Hugh Casson.
