Designs that were once thought of as too avant-garde for functional use, are now appreciated for the bold thinking and originality that went into making them. However, many of these objects are just being discovered by collectors, and their craftsmanship and importance is only now being measured. Miller's 20th Century Design is the perfect handbook for the new and established collector. It explains who the iconic designers were and shows hundreds of desirable pieces: furniture, glass, ceramics, metalwares and more, with wonderful photography, hints and tips and price codes. This book, now available in the perfect gift size, tells you everything you need to know about the most important pieces of design. With in-depth analysis and a comprehensive selection of images, you can be confident in choosing the very best pieces from a period of intense innovation. Is Le Corbusier the new Chippendale? Is Charles Eames the new Duncan Phyffe? Get the inside track on which designs are the true Classics and much much more!Read Less
