Comment: Hardcover with dust jacket that has some cover and edge wear, the spine is tight and the pages are well attached. There are some marks on the title page. The interior pages are without underlining, highlighting or notes upon inspection; this is a good reading copy. This book has been shrink wrapped to better protect it in the warehouse.

Format: Hardcover
Wonderful examples of mixing rough and earthy with sleek and modern. Really inspiring. If I had one bit of criticism it would only be that most every example was either a fabulous loft or an 18th century house. Might have been nice to show a few examples
of the concepts within the walls of a mid century american house. Non the less, I loved this book.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By P. Rudnicki on June 19, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Ancient+Modern is a beautiful book full of wonderful rooms and fantastic furniture. But I think the main reason I read home decor books, like this one, is to get ideas for my own home. With Ancient+Modern, you cannot get practical ideas for your own home.
The reason they put ancient on the cover is because some of the rooms have items that are ancient incorperated into the design. Normal people, such as myself have niether the time or the money to hunt such antiques down. I can imagine you may find something similar in design, that is more up to date, than the ancient indian door they use, no I'm not joking, but no matter what you do you are not going to be able to replicate these 500,000 dollar rooms by yourself. I don't know anyone that has a bathroom big enough to support some of the bathtubs in this book!
All in all, I think Ancient+Modern has beautiful pictures of beautiful and frivolous interior decor that no one would have in their home. But if you would enjoy decorating your home with ancient chinese wedding cupboards then get this book!
