Description: Liberty is the last word in bohemian luxury, a destination and brand celebrated for its unique blend of avant-garde design and expert craftsmanship.

Liberty: The History celebrates the historic beginnings of the iconic store as well as their contemporary vision – from their ‘Eastern Bazaar’ of objets d’art, rugs and textiles from Japan and the East to the brand’s association with the developing Art Nouveau movement, their whimsical window displays and quintessential Art Fabrics, to the innovations in design and printmaking and the savvy collaborations and creative direction that have kept Liberty at the forefront of the fashion world.

With treasures from the Liberty archives including classic silk scarves, designs spanning over a century and original sketches for Liberty Art Fabrics, this is the official invitation into a London institution and a global icon.

This deluxe edition features a cloth-bound hardback book, 10 exquisite art prints and a stunning collectible gift box.


This is the most exquisite collection of information about Liberty, it really is like discovering treasure, there is a beautiful gift box, containing a magnificent cloth covered book detailing the history of Liberty and stunning art prints.

Many of the pages have an illustrated border, the photography is stunning, the documents included and the history is absolutely fascinating.
