Booknote: California Design

A Handbook of California Design, 1930-1965
Craftspeople, Designers, Manufacturers
Edited by Bobbye Tigerman
MIT Press

This is a companion volume to Living in a Modern Way: California Design 1930-1965, published by MIT Press in 2011. It profiles some 140 important figures of the period, including designers Charles and Ray Eames.  The profiles are illustrated, including some rare photographs.  It is a smaller format book than its coffee table size predecessor, but both useful (it's cross-referenced) and attractive.
