America in the 1950s: the world was t so much a stage as a setpiece for TV, the new national phemen. It was a time when how things looked - and how we looked - mattered, a decade of design that comes to life in As Seen on TV . From the painting-by-numbers fad to the public fascination with the First Lady's apparel to the television sensation of Elvis Presley to the sculptural refinement of the automobile, Marling explores what Americans saw and what they looked for with a gaze newly trained by TV. A study in style, in material culture, in art history at eye level, this book shows us those everyday objects that stood for American life in the 1950s, as seen on TV.
Karal Ann Marling is Professor of Art History at the University of Minnesota.
