From A to Eames: A Visual Guide to Mid-Century Modern Design
With 80 tales of design, laid out in a fun and easy-to-read A to Z format, design-loving couples will be reading this book to each other before bed. With an irreverent structure, this becomes a picture book for the refined adult. Each letter delves into one facet of this enduring era of design: mid-century modern homes, interior design, graphic design and illustration, and the iconic personalities.
We might all recognise the names – Charles and Ray Eames, Farnsworth House, the Egg Chair, Henningsen, Elrod House, the case study houses – but what are their stories?
This book delves right into the facts and does so light-heartedly. We learn of the grand inspirations, or sometimes (it turns out) the very simplest of ideas, which fuelled these Goliaths of mid-century modern design. The only downside: with your newfound design-savvy, you won’t be able to look at your IKEA chairs the same way again.
