            A big, bold and hauntingly beautiful story that captures a defining moment in Australia's history. Everywhere he looked he saw what Utzon saw. The drama of harbour and horizon, and at night, the star-clotted sky. It held the shape of the possible, of a promise made and waiting to... be kept ... In 1965 as Danish architect Jorn Utzon's striking vision for the Sydney Opera House transforms the skyline and unleashes a storm of controversy, the shadow of the Vietnam War and a deadly lottery threaten to tear the country apart. Journalist Pearl Keogh, exiled to the women's pages after being photographed at an anti-war protest, is desperate to find her two missing brothers and save them from the draft. Axel Lindquist, a visionary young glass artist from Sweden, is obsessed with creating a unique work that will do justice to Utzon's towering masterpiece. In this big, bold and hauntingly beautiful portrait of art and life, Shell captures a world on the brink of seismic change though the eyes of two unforgettable characters caught in the eye of the storm. And reminds us why taking a side matters. Praise for Shell `A luminous look at a city at a time of change, a time when the building of the Sydney Opera House was a reach for greatness.' The New York Times `Olsson's writing is beautiful, captivating, and is enough in itself to recommend this book ... Her descriptions are vivid, evocative.' New York Journal of Books `A classic in the making.' Australian Financial Review `A shimmering love letter to Sydney, with the husk of the emerging Opera House its beating heart ...

            'One sits more comfortably on a colour that one likes.'-Verner Panton The allure of colour is undeniable, but its wholesale use in product design is a relatively recent development. Perhaps more than any other object, the Eames Chairs of the 1950s symbolise the cultural intersect...ion of design, technology and colour that continues to influence designers to this day. Suddenly, post WWII, pigment-imbued moulded fibreglass allowed buyers to express their individuality through coloured seating, forever changing the way we think about furniture. From the pale blue Anglepoise lamp to Marimekko's hot-red poppy print and the wine-red Bookworm Bookshelf, this book includes classics, future classics and equally exciting new pieces that will be a discovery for readers. Broad in its scope, A Century of Colour in Design delivers a snapshot of 20th-century history through the lens of design, exploring the origins and rationale behind the design and colouration of some of the century's most iconic furniture and objects.
