As a designer, I suppose I'm a sucker for a well-written, well-documented book about iconic objects and some obviously designed objects that have no attribution to a specific designer. If you are a designer, a history buff interested in everyday (and some not-so-everyday) objects that have come-and-gone or come-and-stayed in our iconography of "stuff" this might be a book you can devour, as I did, for a half hour a day over lunch, lamenting at its end only that it was over. Good photos, good history and only a few typographical errors...and a little bit cheaper than direct from the publisher pricing.

In 2006 Phaidon Press published the first comprehensive and authoritative collection of classic design objects - a 3 VOLUME set ... that I recommend. (ISBN 978-0714843995).

this book is only one of three of the volumes -- the publisher has given it a new dust cover and name, but nothing else is new. It is beyond my imagination ... why anyone would want just one volume, unless your dog chewed up one of your original three volume set. FORGET this single volume ! BUY the 3 volume set and you'll be MUCH more in the know !
