Modern Originals: At Home with Mid-Century European Designers
Hardcover, 224 pages, $50
Volume Inc. (whose principal is Graphic Design faculty member Eric Heiman) designed this new book of photographs by Leslie Williamson. The pictures are of the homes of midcentury European designers -- some iconic, some unknown -- and they reveal an inspiring personal approach to modernism. Many of the homes are usually closed to the public. The featured designers include Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Finn Juhl, Robin and Lucienne Day, and Gae Aulenti.
