Format: Hardcover
Interior designers or, perhaps more appropriately, set designers hunting for ideas on how to capture the feeling for late 1960s, early 1970s wild, wacky, pop art, New Yorkish loft, radical-shabby-chic, underground, sorta-space-age, sorta-stoned-out, mostly kinda ugly, kinda cliche arty interiors, can get quite a few ideas from this book with its many color photos of various living spaces. With that said, this book is kind of cool and is worthy of being reviewed because I'm sure there are people out there who will have need for this kind of way-back-machine look at a time gone by. There is a wide variety of "underground" interiors here, and a few ideas to be gleaned, or at least a few things that might get the creative juices flowing for designers who need a little prodding about being adventurous and trying anything, or, conversely, reminders that the try-anything "alternative" approach can be taken too far or in the wrong direction. But then again, some of these interiors do look to be fun places to visit, but actually live in them, I'm not so sure. But I am sure that some interior designers or set designers will find that giving bookshelf space for this book will be worthwhile either as a historical document, hysterical document, or, as suggested already, an idea stimulator.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough - it is an absolute cult classic and a must for any interior reference library..really well edited and some fantastic ideas that should definitely be revisited. They don't make 'em like they used to..

Format: Hardcover
you, the reader, are lucky. no matter what, usually i write many paragraphs. today i have too much work to do. hence you, the reader, are only getting one:

i own almost as many books on almost as many aspects of MidCModern design as there are words in my overburdened head. of them all, this one is my favorite. for some reason, i gather it has become trendy in design's more spatial circles to denature the work of the 1970s. whether this is to emphasize the more spectacular aspects of 1960s work or, perhaps, to align this decade more agreeably w/ the later, & current, conservatism i do not know. i do know that this book does not do that. there is no other book of which i am aware that will show you an apartment made of cake. to my mind's eye, there is little more one needs to know in order to purchase a copy. as an aside, the cliché does not exist herein. thank you [& yr welcome, truly].
