Hardcover. New York , Rizzoli, 1st, 2008-10-14, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, Hardcover, 272 pages, profusely illustrated in color. Like new in publisher's shrink-wrap. In the current world of twentieth-century design collecting, the trend has shifted away from accessible, mass-manufactured modernist furniture and toward designs that were custom-made or produced in very limited editions, with emphasis on American studio design of the 1940s to the 1990s. In contrast to the mass-produced mid-century furniture by Knoll and Herman Miller, American studio designs of the same period focused on novel forms and exquisite craftsmanship. Ranging from the organic shapes of George Nakashima and Vladimir Kagan to metalworks by Paul Evans, these limited production designs were highly sought after in their days by original tastemakers and movie stars. In the last decade, a revival for these rare designs began with connoisseurs such as Tom Ford. Modern Americana is the first full survey of the designs of this prolific but forgotten period, bringing to life again the works of Samuel Marx, Billy Haines, Wendell Castle, T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Karl Springer, James Mont, and many others -- including J.B. Blunk, Michael Coffey, Wharton Esherick, Arthur Espenet Carpenter, Sam Maloof, Jack Rogers Hopkins, Paul Evans & Philip Lloyd Powell, Vladimir Kagan, George Nakashima, Silas Seandel, Charles Hollis Jones, Philip & Kevin LaVerne, Tommi Parzinger, Harvey Probber, Edward Wormley, John Dickinson, Arthur Elrod, and Paul Laszlo.

Softcover. Boston, MFA Publications, 1st, 2003, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: None, Softcover, pictorial wraps, 168 pages, illustrated in color and b&w. The Studio Furniture movement began around the middle of the twentieth century, as a revival of the Victorian Arts and Crafts Movement, and as a reaction against the ongoing domination of mass-produced rote furniture. Over the course of subsequent decades, studio furniture has taken many directions, from the reproduction of period styles to designs that resemble sculpture more than furniture. The Maker's Hand is the most authoritative book to date about the Studio Furniture movement. It details the history and development of Studio Furniture, from its origins in post-World War II America to its current prominence. Also included are extensive biographies of some 40 furniture makers, as well as guides to the main exhibitions, schools and galleries. Profusely illustrated with works by Wendell Castle, Sam Maloof, Molly Gregory, Wharton Esherick and many others, this is an indispensable guide to the inventive world of Studio Furniture. Clean copy.
