With thanks to the Design Archives in Brighton, here’s a collection of photographs, posters and drawings from The Festival of Britain to celebrate the publication of Harriet Atkinson’s new book.
Yayoi Kusama (1929 – ), Mushrooms Aown, 2010, acrylic on canvas, 97 x 130 cm, Victoria Miro Gallery.
In occupied Poland during WWII Poles and Jews were not allowed to own cameras, buy film or take photographs. It is perhaps inevitable then that photography quickly became an underground activity.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), Jane Morris (The Blue Silk Dress), 1868, oil on canvas, 110.5 x 90.2 cm, The Society of Antiquaries of London (Kelmscott Manor).
