Description

Vintage Home is a comprehensive buyer's guide to 20th century collectibles and a glorious celebration of the period (1918-1970). Covering designs of the age, which sell in major auction houses worldwide, as well as cheerful mass-produced kitsch, which you can pick up in car boot sales, charity shops, flea markets and yard sales, Judith Miller, best-selling author of over 100 books, shows how you can acquire fantastic design examples from around the world for every taste and budget – if you know what you are looking for.

The author

Judith Miller is a regular TV presenter and best-selling author of over 80 books on antiques and interiors. She started collecting antiques in the late 1960s while studying at Edinburgh University: fascinated by inexpensive plates bought in the city's junk shops, she researched their past in books and auction catalogues and at antiques fairs and shops. Her knowledge of antiques grew, and in 1979 she co-founded Miller's Antiques Price Guide. She went on to publish numerous acclaimed titles, including Miller's Antiques Encyclopedia, The Style Sourcebook, Influential Styles, Judith Miller Colour and the best-selling DK Homes & Antiques and Collectables Price Guide. A regular contributor to newspapers and magazines, including BBC Homes & Antiques, she is also co-presenter of The House Detectives (BBC2), consultant and co-presenter of The Antiques Trail and presenter of It's Your Bid. She lives in London and New York.
