Miller's Mid-Century Modern: Living with Mid-Century Modern Design by Judith Miller

Millers_midcentury

There could be a new bible for lovers of all things mid-century soon, with the arrival of Miller's Mid-Century Modern: Living with Mid-Century Modern Design by Judith Miller.

This new, 256-page volume overs design from the late 1940s through to the 1970s. That alone sells it to us. According to the initial details, the book explores the most desirable interiors, furniture, ceramics, glass, metalware and textiles of this period, featuring iconic designs and designers, as well as price codes to give you an idea of just how much items are worth.

There are also standalone features on some of the bigger names, including Alvar Aalto, Charles and Ray Eames, Robin and Lucienne Day and Arne Jacobsen for example, plus historical contexts and some shots of previously-unseen works.

On the plus side, a great read and reference. On the downside, your chances of a bargain down at the local auction or junk shop might diminish a little. The shelf date is 1st October 2012, with Amazon doing discounted pre-order at £19.50 (as opposed to the full price of £30).
