In my on-going efforts to post about new graphic design related books that I’ve read or intend to read, I have a couple more gems to share today. First, read Alexandra Lange’s review of “Eames + Valastro: Design in the Life of an American Family” (Ostroff), a book in which the author explores the iconic pieces of furniture as every day items, before they were icons. The second book is “Pantone: The Twentieth Century in Color” (Eiseman & Recker) which explores color trends over a hundred years. I’ll be checking both of these out.
The other thing I wanted to mention is an exhibit that I somehow overlooked for the previous exhibit post. The Library of Virginia is hosting an exhibition featuring works of the Hatch Show Print letterpress out of Nashville, running December 5 through February 4, with an opening reception from 5:30-9 tonight. Definitely planning on hitting up the opening tonight!
