Modern design is beautiful, functional, idiosyncratic, and still relatively affordable. 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. The first book in a new series of specialist guides which will tell you everything you need to know about a subject. With in-depth analysis and a comprehensive selection of images they will tell you all you ever need to know on a selected topic.
