A Century of Remembrance
Publisher: G2 Rights
The scale and nature of the First World War, and the manner in which the dead were treated, created conditions in which a very particular language of grief and remembrance of the war dead flourished. A Century of Remembrance explores the deeply personal ways in which people mourned their loved ones, and memorialised them, and examines the cornerstones of national-scale remembrance that took hold in Britain throughout the 1920s, from the poppy to the cenotaph. Written by Laura Clouting, a senior curator historian at the Imperial War Museum, and featuring approximately150 images of objects from the IWM collections, including photographs, film stills, posters and paintings, this highly illustrated book will be published to accompany the Making a New World season at IWM London and IWM North in 2018, and coincides with the centenary of the end of the First World War.
