"'Alexander Girard' is an encyclopedic (672 pages!) study of the design guru's influential style, especially his whimsical table settings." —Martha Stewart Living
"At 672 pages and a hefty 15 pounds, 'Alexander Girard,' by Todd Oldham and Kiera Coffee, might appear to be a catalog raisonné featuring all of the prolific designer's textiles, graphics, illustrations, furniture, interiors, products and buildings. In fact, Mr. Oldham said, Mr. Girard 'saved everything—every magazine clipping, every article, every ad.' To make sense of it all, Mr. Oldham and his team sifted through thousands of photos and documents, interviewing relatives and former employees." —The New York Times
