Described as the 'benchmark reference on the subject', The Story of Eames Furniture by Marilyn Neuhart with John Neuhart promises to be a must-buy for anyone with an interest in midcentury design.
A huge, two-volume, 800-page set packed with more than 2,500 images, it paraphrases Charles Eames himself, explaining his life and just as importantly, the story of the furniture of Charles and Ray Eames in exacting detail.
In an age of corporate blandness it's nice to be reminded of attractive logos, the one shown in the print above being a pretty attractive example. It's the logo for Marilyn Neuhart's Hand Press which is now being sold as a print in its own right by House Industries.
The Hand Press was launched in 1957 by Marilyn and John Neuhart as a small printing business. Appropriate to the name, the logo uses various blocks to make up the shape of a hand, apparently made on Marilyn's own hand.
The House Industries' version is also hand-printed and costs $35.
