Editorial Reviews


"What Opposition Books has given us is a collection of essays - impudent, incisive, critical - about the failures of applied design in fin de siecle Vienna. Topics ranging from plumbing, furniture, and hygiene to men's shoes, undergarments, carriages, and printing are attacked by Adolf Loos, the architect, teacher, dandy, and artistic radical.... Taken together, they tell us a lot about the forgotten roots of the Modern Movement, and remind us how shallow and warped our collective memory of Modernism has recently become."
- Jane Thompson, ID
