U. S. INDUSTRIAL DESIGN 1949 - 1950
[Industrial Design] Society of Industrial Designers: U. S. INDUSTRIAL DESIGN 1949 - 1950. NYC: The Studio Publications, 1949. First edition. A very good hardcover book bound in two-tone cloth and with a gold emboss in a very good dust jacket: light wear to tips and edges. The presence of the dust jacket makes this an exceptional copy of this rather uncommon volume. Interior unmarked and very clean. Needles to say, out-of-print. A very desirable title if you're into this kind of thing.
Society of Industrial Designers
9.25 x 12.25 hardcover book with 190 pages and 389 b/w photographs and illustrations highlighting outstanding American Post-war industrial design from 1949. The design and production of this volume is absolutely stellar -- making this book both an extraordinarily useful reference volume, as well as a genuinely beautiful period object as well. Highly recommended.
This debut publication of The Society of Industrial Designers illustrates all the best of modern American industrial design. Includes many examples of furniture, ceramics, housewares, appliances, automobiles, buildings, retail displays, showrooms, radios, projectors, televisions, and many other objects designed for the burgeoning postwar middle class.
