    Best book I have ever seen on the design of an extraordinarily wide range of works from 1850 to the present Extraordinary photos, wonderful biographies of key designers, clear and intelligent grouping of works into eras and styles Awesome diversity, including almost every aspect of items shaping our lives furniture, lights, appliances, tableware, transportation, decorative pottery, cameras, clocks, fabrics, wallpaper, posters, typewriters, jewelry, radios, coffee tea kettles, and on and on seemingly endlessly All are clearly documented by time and designer, with a wonderful separate A to Z compendium of designer biographies at the very end of the book If you like design of everyday objects, you will love this book.
