This volume is the single best source for anyone interested in exploring and experiencing Mid-Century Modern, the international design movement that still influences homes and lifestyles from Palm Springs to Long Island and from Japan to Scandinavia. It is divided into three main sections: "Media and Masters" profiles key creators, including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nakashima, Jean Prouve, and Eero Saarinen; "Houses and Interiors" presents 20 seminal and complete Mid-Century Modern homes and their furnishings, including buildings by Philip Johnson, Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto, and Marcel Breuer; and an alphabetical dictionary of people, terms, and places is a comprehensive reference to the movement. The informed and accessible texts are illustrated with more than 1,000 images that bring together classics and rarities, mass-produced items and unusual objets d'art.

Review quote

"The organization is impeccable. . . . With each flip of the page, there is another recognizable image, and the reader is constantly in awe of the breadth of this movement and its evident impact on contemporary design."--InteriorDesign.com "Mid-Century Modern Complete is an encyclopedic volume that sets out to create a comprehensive portrait of every aspect of post-war production. That means a shelf-busting size, around 1,000 illustrations and a fascinating text that places objects in their often tumultuous historical context."--Wallpaper
