NF in VG+ jacket. Purple boards with silver lettering. Lavender color-illus. dj with white lettering. 207 pp. with color illus. throughout. Includes a fold-out view of Saladino's home in Connecticut. Saladino's signature is on the title page, but it looks suspiciously like it was part of the book-printing process. The first part of the book addresses age-old design problems, and the second focuses on some of Saladino's most impressive creations. A must-have book for anyone interested in interior design. (paraphrased from the dj). Photography by Barbara and Rene Stoeltie.

VG (Slight wear to corners and to bottom edge of dj; otherwise clean. ) Black buckram, lavender and color illus. dust jacket, 208 pp., 215 color illus. Designer John Saladino addresses first "those perennial design problems which preoccupy us all; " and then showcases some of his own "most impressive creations."

Book arrived in better condition than noted, sooner than expected and with an unexpected Saladino autograph.
Thank you Alibris for all the surprises.
