Overall condition is really good, a couple have some bends. 1- ABCs of Design Hardcover ABC of Design is a charming book containing a clever play on the alphabet. Featuring drawings of chairs and tables by international designers such as Eileen Gray, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Otto Wagner, Isamu Noguchi, Eero Saarinen, and others, ABC of Design slyly uncovers the first letter of each of their names within the piece they designed. Each chair or table is handsomely rendered and accompanied by a brief and informative text about its designer.

It's for readers who want easy access to information and who are turned off by art-world jargon.With cutting-edge tone and text, these innovative, richly illustrated, compact books (6" x 6" gift size) are targeted at busy people who've heard of these much-discussed artists - and who know that many people, for some reason, think these artists are important - but honestly don't get what the big fuss is all about. 3- Big Hair A hair-raising journey through the era when big was king. In the beginning, there was the hair. And some of the hair was bad, but it was small. As men and women everywhere worked to improve and increase their lot, however, they stumbled onto some of humankind's most miraculous innovations: spray, gel, mousse, crimping irons, and of course, the perm. With these new tools, people everywhere suddenly found themselves able to coax their lank, lifeless tresses toward glorious new heights. The age of big hair had begun. Now, the greatest of these bouffants, afros, rakes, beehives, and Flock-of-Seagulls have been plucked from their spots in hairdressers' windows and given the respect they so clearly demand. Bigger and badder than you ever dreamed possible, Big Hair goes out to all those people of yesteryear who were unafraid to think BIG. 4- The Chair: An Appreciation (Design Icons) Hardcover In a light-hearted look at how 20th century designers have transformed this everyday item into an object of desire, Colombo discusses how shape, size, colour and materials are used in chair design, and asks whether there is an ultimate chair.

  • Rita Moreno tells all about her ‘near-fatal’ affair with Marlon Brando in memoir
    More info
    Moreno falling for Brando on the set of “Désirée.”His still from their film “The Night of the Following Day.” (AP) ( )She was fiery and formidable on screen, but off screen, and in the arms of her lover Marlon Brando, Oscar-winning actress Rita Moreno, best known for her role as Anita in “West Side Story,” was reduced to a withering, suicidal mess. Her obsessive love for the Method actor “almost proved fatal.” During their eight-year affair, she endured chronic philandering, emotional abuse, a botched abortion — and that’s only the beginning. “I remember how he spoke to me, how he played the drums, how he made love. .. and how I almost died from loving him,” Moreno, now 81, writes in her new memoir, “Rita Moreno.” Although Moreno’s life story is fascinating on its own — she’s one of the only people, not to mention the first Hispanic, to receive an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony — a sizable chunk of the book, about one-third, is devoted to her torrid love affair with Brando. “We were locked in the ultimate folie à deux, a crazy love that lasted for years, until one day I quite literally was forced out of a coma and had to choose life over him,” she writes. Ruby Dolores Alverio arrived in The Bronx from Puerto Rico as a 5-year-old. She started taking dance lessons a year later and by 16 was discovered by a talent scout, who recommended her to famed producer Louis B. Mayer. Mayer took one look at the teen — who had painted herself up to look like Elizabeth Taylor — and in a matter of seconds said, “Sign her!” The second order of business was getting a Hollywood-friendly name. She was calling herself Rosita Moreno, using her stepfather’s last name, when she met with powerful casting agent Bill Grady, who tried some options out. “Ruby Fontino? Marcy Miranda?” The names got progressively worse. “Orchid Montenegro!” Then he stopped himself. “I got it! How about Rita, after Rita Hayworth?” Her voluptuous beauty caught the eye of many older men, including one “very handsome redheaded gentleman” at a hotel opening who was sitting next to a regal companion. “His hairline moved back an inch, as when a predatory animal spots his prey and paralyzes it with ‘that look.’ It was obviously lust at first sight, and I remember thinking, ‘Whooo, this guy don’t waste no time!’ ” she writes. “I have no doubt that this man would have sent someone over to my table to escort me upstairs. Weeks later, she sees her admirer in Life magazine — the young senator from Massachusetts, John F. Kennedy, with his wife, Jackie. Then, in 1954, in a makeup room on the set of Brando’s “Désirée,” in which he played Napoleon, a 22-year-old Moreno met the man who would rock her world. “Just meeting him that first day sent my body temperature skyrocketing as though I had been dropped into a very hot bath, and I went into a full-body blush,” she writes of meeting the 30-year-old icon-to-be. “It was the sort of rush that inspires poetry and songs.” The sex was earth-shattering. “To say that he was a great lover — sensual, generous, delightfully inventive — would be gravely understating what he did not only to my body, but for my soul. Every aspect of being with Marlon was thrilling, because he was more engaged in the world than anyone else I’d ever known,” she writes. But it wasn’t all roses. He seemed to have a darkness, a deep well of need, stemming from his childhood with an alcoholic mother. Possibly as an outgrowth of this, he had “insatiable sexual needs,” which he unabashedly pursued with droves of other women. “He broke my heart and came close to crushing my very spirit with his physical infidelities and, worse, with his emotional betrayals,” she writes. During their relationship, he married twice and fathered children with his wives. But “I couldn’t stay away. In fact, I was becoming addicted to the challenge of winning him over and over again,” Moreno says. Often the way to win him over was to date other men. Moreno took up with a disappointing Dennis Hopper, then with “a human missile. .. Elvis.” “I knew no one could possibly make Marlon Brando more jealous,

  • Assouline Marie-Antoinette Style
    Marie-Antoinette, the last queen of France, fascinated her contemporaries with her temperament and independent spirit, her escapades and frivolity. Born the fifteenth child of Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa, she married the future Louis XVI at age 15, and charmed the entire French court with her small blonde build and grace. Crowned queen in 1774, she quickly stepped forward and upstaged her kind. A great lover and rebel, she lost herself in gambling and social activity, angering her subjects, who would never forgive her excesses. From her powder pink boudoirs and her apartments filled with lacquered furniture, to the Trianon where she brought her lovers, to her milk house where she played farmer's wife, this book traces the journey of the woman who left her mark on her time with a feminism that was both flirtatious and glamorous. About The Author Adrien Goetz, a certified professor of history with a PhD in art history, teaches at the Sorbonne. He is also the author of three novels, including La Dormeuse de Naples (Le Passage and Point Seuil), which was awarded the Deux Magots and Roger Nimier prizes in 2004.

  • Breathtaking Typographic Posters Smashing Magazine
    More info
    You can't design without type. However, yon can use only type (or mostly only type) to create breath-taking designs. In fact, many graphic designers and artists take exactly this route to communicate their ideas through their works. The results are sometimes crazy, sometimes artsy, sometimes beautiful, but often just different from things we're used to. Thus designers explore new horizons and we explore new viewing perspectives which is what inspiration is all about. This post showcases over 50 breathtaking typographic posters designed by artists across the globe. We feature Oriental, Iranian, Hebrew, Japanese, Chinese and Russian typographic posters as well as a number of further references. This isn't a "best of", there is no ranking and the collection isn't supposed to be complete; it's rather subjective and quite random. All screenshots are clickable; however, links not always lead directly to the corresponding image (e.g. it's impossible in Flash-based sites) — sometimes you'll need to search for it. You may also want to take a look at the article Typography In Motion we've published few months ago. So what can be achieved out of simple letters and symbols? Please be patient, some screenshots are huge.
