Decorated endpapers. 248 pp. 624 black and white photographs and diagrams. 8 color plates. Text in English, French, German and Italian. The scarce dust jacket is in very good condition, with sun-faded yellow spine, a few chips and short, closed tears. Overall a very good to near fine copy.
9 x 11.5 hardcover book with 248 pages and 624 illustrations (including 8 color plates) of Carboni's trendsetting work exhibition design for Italian industries. This book features gravure printing and the highest reproduction qualities and was printed in Milan under Carboni's supervision. Illustrated introduction by Herbert Bayer.
A visually stunning book that spotlights the relatively unknown Carboni's work in from the early 1930s through the late 1950s. This book is a valuable resource because it traces the development of one of Italy's finest modernists through tightly focused case studies of his exhibition work for the recovering Italian economy and culture. My highest recommendation.
