As the first ‘Founder’s Choice’ to join Scala’s popular ‘Director’s Choice’ series, this stunning book highlights the favourite items of design and culture collected by museum founder Micky Wolfson. Rooted in the greatest century of growth and change humanity has ever known – 1850 to 1950 – The Wolfsonian traces the odyssey from agrarian to urban, colonial empires to Cold War superpowers, the first spike of the Transcontinental Railroad to the advent of television.
