Classic Contemporary is an opportunity for Gosling to explore his influences, including historical sources (dating from the eighteenth century to the twentieth) and the work of contemporaries. He examines the most essential elements, not just the bones but the DNA of classic design, to discover how they have endured and how they can be adapted for contemporary tastes. Through these pages, Regency, Victorian, Art Deco, or Modernism can be viewed in a new light, providing inspiration and unique insight into the work of one of today's most respected designers.
