After reading about Easton's past schooling and training, then you can understand why he has such virtuosity with an array of styles. He had intensive training in both modern and classic styles, combined with the privilege of working at Parish-Hadley, and teaching design history at Parsons School of Design. I'm always fascinated how top designers, or talented folks in any field, display an early interest in it as a child as Easton did. My own father, a car designer who worked with Raymond Loewy (often called the father of industrial design), used to beg my grandmother to take him down to the Chicago train yards so he could sketch the new aerodynamically-shaped trains. It was interesting to read Easton's own words about his early sketches, and leanings towards design, going to museums and stores to look at rooms.
This book is as interesting to read, as it is to view the pictures, and that's saying a lot! Occasionally you read about someone's life and think, if you couldn't be yourself, now that's a life to trade places with, at least for a month or even better a year. I had that experience reading this book--to have had the experiences and schooling in design that Mr. Easton did, and to have that talent at his fingertips to enjoy developing, would be a gift.Read more ›
