Описание: This mammoth catalog of American furniture manufacturers shows, for the first time in modern publication, the styles of furniture available at the height of the 1920s, a pivotal period between Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and the Depression as 1932 was the very worst year in the history of the furniture industry and most of the companies that failed did so in the four years between 1928 and 1932. Therefore, this catalog remains as the single sourcebook for the products of American furniture companies of this era. Room settings of the period are shown as well as color charts of wood showing the standard finishes of the period. These will be a great help to people restoring furniture to its original color. Thousands of furniture forms are displayed with descriptive commentary facts, and a few original prices. In this edition, a price guide is included for estimating values in the current marketplace. This exciting reference book should become a useful tool for interior decorators, furniture historians, collectors, dealers and restorers working with early twentieth-century designs.

Описание: Over a period of 25 years, the internationally renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been an explorer of unfamiliar places where human
activity has reshaped the surface of the land. His astonishing large-scale colour photographs of the landscapes of mining, quarrying, railcutting, recycling, oil refining and shipbreaking
uncover a stark, almost sublime beauty in the residue of industrial "progress". The implicit social and environmental upheavals
hat underlie these images make them powerful emblems of our times.
This catalogue of a major retrospective of Burtynsky's work features essays by Lori Pauli, Kenneth Baker
and Mark Haworth-Booth, as well as a wide-ranging interview with the artist by Michael Torosian. The book includes 64 colour plates.
