Designing Utopia

    By

    This is the first detailed account of the remarkable British writer and artist John Hargrave 1894-1982, and his three creations The Kindred of the Kibbo Kift, The Green Shirt Movement for Social Credit and The Social Credit Party of Great Britain. Combining art, politics and design to visually stunning effect, Hargarve and his followers created a maverick but uniquely English form of modernism. Emerging from the turbulence of the twentieth century, this colourful Utopian youth movement has strong resonances with the twenty-first-century world. The book draws on the extensive visual archive of the Kibbo Kift, held at the Museum of London.
