Originally published in 2012, this has been out of print and south after for a long time. So good to see Miller’s Mid-Century Modern: Living with Mid-Century Modern Design by Judith Miller heading back to the shelves.
In fact, you can pre-order a copy now if you like. If you have been on the hunt for one for a while and avoided the three-figure price tags, you might just want to do that too.
I’m not sure if the content has been updated, but I’m guessing it might well have. The cover certainly. But the broad thrust of the book’s content is likely to be along the same lines.
That’s a look at design from the late 1940s to the 1970s, covering interiors, furniture, ceramics, glass, metalware and textiles from that era. The book features all the iconic designs and designers of the era, with price codes to help value and appraise your pieces. The careers and influence of ground-breaking designers, including Alvar Aalto, Charles and Ray Eames, Robin and Lucienne Day, Arne Jacobsen and many others are also here as feature pages, with key pieces also placed in an historical context alongside coverage of innovations in design, production methods and materials.
256 pages and a price tag of £30. You can pre-order now ahead of the 1st February release date.
