Made a great find yesterday while shopping, I can't walk by a good book sale and found this book, Australian Houses of the Forties & Fifties By Peter Cuffley. I have already finished a few chapters and love it. It's got every thing you need for a first-time reader on the subject, I couldn't be more happier. The book is an over view of homes built in the 40's & 50's but it has so much more in it, at the back it gives ideas of colours, renovating, furnishing and collecting. A must read for Australian retro fans.
