Publication of this title has been cancelled. Publisher's description: Alexander Girard was one of the decisive figures of design in postwar America, alongside his close friends George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames. As head of the Herman Miller Company's textile division, Girard designed a multitude of textiles that reflect his love of festive colors and abstract, geometric patterns; his upholstery fabrics remain as popular as ever, and many of them are still in production today. Over the course of his lengthy career, Girard also made a name for himself in the fields of furniture, exhibition and interior design, as well as in the graphic arts. Produced in collaboration with Girard's estate, and taken from the collection of the Brooklyn boutique Bright Lyons, this affordable volume -- the only inexpensive guide to the designer's oeuvre -- presents 100 of his finest works. It includes everything from matchbooks to fabrics to tables to posters for the likes of Herman Miller, Braniff and John Deere, and is accompanied by commentary from his family and design experts. Each of the 100 representative works has been newly photographed for this volume, and the entire book is styled to provide an immersive, fun experience of Girard's colorful world.
