From the foreword by Eudorah M. Moore, Curator of Design, Pasadema Art Museum: "Because good design should be available to all people, and should meet the demand of many lifestyles, I was interested to take on the challenge of selecting items which meet these standards , to include in this book. I agreed that items selected should be primarily from Broadway resources and within their price structure, and that items would be designed and manufactured in the United States."
