Classic Modern: Midcentury Modern At Home, Dietsch, Deborah K.
8 Dietsch, Deborah K. Classic Modern: Midcentury Modern At Home
Simon & Schuster 2000 0684867443 / 9780684867441 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
This gogeously illustrated book is the only major work to document the hip and inventive design of the mid-twentieth century, a period that today reig ns unchallenged among style setters as well as a new generation of home own ers and collectors. There is no hotter style today than the cooler than coo l work of modern designers and archtitects from the 1940s and 50s. Endlessl y inventive and emminently livable, mid-century modernism has an optimism a nd confidence born of postwar abundance, and a spirited elegance that appea ls powerfully fifty years later. In CLASSIC MODERN, design expert Deborah D ietsch introduces readers to the basic tenets of modern design and explains how the simple yet inspired forms typical of this style were so readily di sseminated into mainstream American culture. Filled throughout with enticin g examples of mid-century pieces from such timeless designers as Charles an d Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Arne Jacobsen, and George Nelson, this beautifu l book recaptures the excitement of the period's brilliant designs.

12 Floyd, Margaret Henderson Architecture after Richardson : Regionalism before Modernism--Longfellow, A lden, and Harlow in Boston and Pittsburgh
University Of Chicago Press 1994 0226254100 / 9780226254104 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A tight clean first edition/printing, no inscription/markings in the interi or, ex-lib; This scholarly title critically assesses the careers, work, and patronage of Alexander Wadworth Longfellow and Frank Ellis Alden, both former employees of H.H. Richardson, and Alfred Branch Harlow, who had been associated with McKim, Mead and White. Working primarily in western Pennsylvania and New England, these three architects enjoyed prolific careers from 1886 until the 1920s, completing a wide range of commissions from residences to institutions and commercial buildings. By placing the three architects in a broader context of American architectural and landscape history, Floyd (Architectural Education and Boston, Boston Architectural Ctr., 1989) uncovers strong cultural affinities between Boston and Pittsburgh. Numerous illustrations provide fascinating glimpses of turn-of-the-century American architecture; an appendix lists all known commissions by the three architects.

Inside Rome: Discovering Rome's Classic Interiors, Friedman, Joe
13 Friedman, Joe Inside Rome: Discovering Rome's Classic Interiors
Phaidon Press 1993 0714828920 / 9780714828923 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
Joe Friedman and Marella Caracciolo have explored Rome to discover the grea test and most startling period interiors in the city. The book shows not on ly the interiors that are well known, but celebrates the extraordinary span of Rome, the city that is a microcosm of the whole of European history. Fr om its ancient past, its Renaissance and Baroque splendour, and right up to its emergence as the capital of a unified Italy, Rome has been at the fore front of architecture. As a city it has more sites of a special value than any other in Europe, and the authors have taken great care to bring a cross -section of this richness. Colour photography by Francesco Venturi captures the beauty and diversity of some of the world's most outstanding interiors , ranging from Antiquity to Art Deco. But, as with all other books in this series, "Inside Rome" is fun; a reference book for the visitor, but also a companion for all those who know and love this greatest of cities.
