This handbook is a comprehensive study of international design, decade by decade, with essays on the trends, innovations, and significant objects of each period. The captions, which accompany the excellent illustrations, include detailed discussions of the aesthetic and intellectual impact of these "landmarks of 20-century design," from the Barcelona Chair to the Walkman, Larsen fabrics to Michael Graves's tea kettle. The second section includes short biographies of the designers with individual bibliographical references, along with a general bibliography and an excellent index. A splendid overview of a century of striking originality and aesthetic practicality. Recommended for all visual arts collections.
