Editorial Reviews

Review

Several architects and planners have had larger roles than Henry Dreyfuss (1904-72) in creating the look of 20th-century America, and other industrial designers were flashier. But none were more creative in making common objects--sewing machines, vacuum cleaners, tractors, wall thermostats, telephones (a single series of one of his Bell phones sold 162 million units)--attractive, unobtrusive and easy to use.... The 200 photographs are intensely evocative of the great age of design from the 30's through the 60's and Mr. Flinchum's account of the designer's life and work is judicious, if not eloquent. -- The New York Times Book Review, D. J. R. Bruckner

Format: Hardcover
This is a well-written biography about one of the leading industrial designers of the 20th century. Anyone who has ever marvelled at the simple elegance of the 'round' thermostat has Henry Dreyfuss to thank, and this book tells much of his story.
