Sottsass monograph, First Edition
The life and work of Ettore Sottsass is more relevant than ever, with exhibitions around the world and renewed collector interest in the Memphis movement. This book, packed with beautiful images taken from the extensive Sottsass archives and including drawings and sketches from the designer's countless sketchbooks, explores his entire career from the 1940s to the 2000s, covering everything from his architectural projects and product design to his jewellery, sculpture, and graphics.
The unique design of the book allows it to either be read cover–to–cover as a narrative history, or by discipline, picking up the relative thread under each period, with multi–colored tabs to distinguish each sub–chapter.
This monograph is not only a great source of information on Sottsass and his work, but an object of beauty in its own right. Out of print only a few years, it is now a highly sought-after collector item.
This copy is in like-new condition, never read, still wrapped in plastic.
