Hardcover. US, Conran, 2009, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, Like new hardcover in publisher's shrink-wrap. 336 pages. In this endlessly provocative volume, Stephen Bayley, design authority and cultural critic, takes on the female body, analyzing each crook and every curve as a sign, a symbol, and as a designed object. From Aphrodite to the industrialization of the breast, and from pin-ups to the future of sex, WOMAN AS DESIGN is a fascinating mix of design, cultural history, erotica, fashion, and fetishism.
