Robin Boyd published his first book ‘Victorian Modern: 111 years of modern architecture in Victoria’ in 1947. In 1971, Robin Boyd was preparing to republish the book, however, he passed away before this came to fruition. On the 40th anniversary of his death, the Robin Boyd Foundation is pleased to complete the project.
‘Victorian Modern was not just a landmark piece of Victoria’s architectural history, it was also a visual tour-de-force, revealing Boyd’s skills as a graphic artist and his love affair with typography.’ – Professor Philip Goad. Melbourne School of Design, University of Melbourne.
