THE HARD LIFE. Jasper Morrison. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2016. 208 pp. with 190 ills. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783037785140 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: By what means did so much beauty and ingenuity appear in articles of everyday rural life in Portugal? How did the shape of these objects balance necessity and formal perfection so skillfully? This book explores the effect that generations of trial and error, individual craftsmanship, and an instinct to carve out the essential with the slenderest of means brought to objects that made life both livable and meaningful to a pre-industrial society. The objects photographed and described by designer Jasper Morrison may be appreciated both for their beauty and for the example they set of design at its purest.
