Kenneth Grange: Making Britain Modern is the first book to document the work of the internationally renowned post-war product and industrial designer Kenneth Grange.

Since 1947 Kenneth Grange has worked with a range of high-profile clients, including British Rail, Wilkinson Sword and Manganese Bronze, and products as varied as the Anglepoise lamp, the black cab and high-speed Intercity 125 train. Grange is one of the founding partners of the famous design consultancy Pentagram, where he has worked with well-known clients such as Kodak and Kenwood. 

Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Design Museum, Kenneth Grange: Making Britain Modern celebrates the career of one of the truly great figures of modern British design, featuring previously unpublished interviews and specially commissioned photography of his work. The book also includes essays by renowned commentators on modern British design, including Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, London, and Fiona MacCarthy, cultural historian and widely published writer on design.
