Usually, the work of Charles and Ray Eames is highlighted by imagery of the classic design work. Eames on Design: The Collected Words by Daniel Ostroff takes a different approach.

The clue is in that title, with Eames obsessive Daniel Ostroff bringing together the pair's collected words from magazine articles, television interviews, film scripts, personal letters and lectures, courtesy of archival material held by the Eames family, the Eames Office, Herman Miller, Vitra and many other sources. The result? A 272-page book that should give you an in-depth insight into the thinking behind the designs, as well as an understanding of Charles and Ray Eames themselves.

Just published by Fiell, you can pick up a copy from Amazon for £21.21.
