Have you ever come across a piece ofmodern design furniture when you’re on vacation and had the urge to send a postcard in place of buying the piece that’s a little beyond your budget? Coming across a piece like an original Eames chair can be exciting for enthusiasts and thanks to a new book, lovers of modern design will have a great collection of postcards to keep or share.
Mid-Century Modern by illustrated book publisher Thames & Hudson functions as a collection of postcards, a notebook, and references captured within four books that honor the many modern design artists of the 20th century including widely respected names like Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Eileen Gray, and more. These books each focus on a specific theme like tables, chairs, or lighting. Each design is presented as a profile using a minimalist style that evokes the design of Herman Miller. The books make heavy use of pastels which were popular at the time and the illustrations are all in black and white to capture the finer details of each given piece like the lines and contours.
Mid-Century Modern will be available next month with prices ranging between $14.95 to $24.95.
