"'Alexander Girard' is an encyclopedic (672 pages!) study of the design guru's influential style, especially his whimsical table settings." —Martha Stewart Living
"At 672 pages and a hefty 15 pounds, 'Alexander Girard,' by Todd Oldham and Kiera Coffee, might appear to be a catalog raisonné featuring all of the prolific designer's textiles, graphics, illustrations, furniture, interiors, products and buildings. In fact, Mr. Oldham said, Mr. Girard 'saved everything—every magazine clipping, every article, every ad.' To make sense of it all, Mr. Oldham and his team sifted through thousands of photos and documents, interviewing relatives and former employees." —The New York Times
Alexander Girard (1907-1993) was a pre-eminent mid-20th century designer whose work spanned many disciplines, including textile design, graphic design, typography, illustration, furniture design, interior design, product design, exhibit design, and architecture. He was born in New York, to an American mother and French-Italian father, raised in Florence, Italy, and graduated from the Royal School of Architecture in Rome.
Il limite è che non è maneggevole, ma ha il pregio di essere uno dei pochi libri che racconta il lavoro di Girard a 360°.
Girard non è solo Vitra, e questo libro te lo fa vedere nelle sue tante, tante pagine.
praise than that! This is a book that will inspire me for years to come.
It's well worth the current discounted pricing on Amazon. For anyone who is interested in Charles Eames, George Nelson, and / or Herman Miller, Inc - this book is a must have! I only wish Girard was still alive filling the world with joy, humor, color and design.
I would recommend it to anyone interested in Design.
