This book is therefore of particular interest to me, as although I was aware of Angus's designs, I didn't know much about the woman behind the art, that her contemporaries included Eric Ravilious and that she was influenced by the work of William Morris.
The book is not just visually stunning and of interest to anyone with a passion for the history of the early 20th century or for interiors - it's also a book about women, about travel, social status and change, all feeding into interiors and fuelling Angus's creative thirst. Absolutely marvellous stuff.
If you're interested in seeing some of Peggy Angus's work, there's actually an exhibition running until September 21st 2014, at the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne. Well worth a visit I'm sure for those of you geographically closer.
Peggy Angus by James Russell is published by the Antique Collectors Club Publishing Group and is available on their website here for £25. I was sent the book for review, but all views are my own!
