“This book presents an extensive cast of women designers who have made the world a far richer place. As the Fiells write in their introduction: ‘By introducing a female sensibility to problem-solving, they have contributed to a psychologically broader and more humane understanding of design. From textile and graphic designers to ceramicists and architects, it provides a kaleidoscopic catalogue of the last century of bold women creators.”
