Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Underwhelming in size, huge in data. This little puppy packs a punch in its breadth of coverage of artists from obscure to the obvious. Gorgeous design by Irma Boom makes for easy readability and organization - pages are rough edged and uncoated to create a sensory experience while traveling through the content. Nothing 4color or glossy here, just really rich and informative. The color looks great on my bookshelf.

Format: Paperback
I initially picked this up because of the stunning design -- Irma Boom's design clearly matches the incredible resource of designers and artisans covered in this book. Many important figures here with many unknown (to me), an excellent overview of mid-century and modernist CA design.
