Описание: Explore the interiors, collections, and fascinations of the brilliant design duo Carey Maloney and Hermes Mallea of M(Group) in the one-of-a-kind monograph on their work, 'Stuff: The M(Group) guide to collecting, decorating with, and learning about wonderful and unusual things'. A treasure trove of design eclecticism, Stuff brings you inside their world of beautifully orchestrated, transformative, and bold city and country interiors. Enter 'Stuff' to become versed in subjects that span their diverse and sometimes esoteric interests: from Australian Aboriginal art to Chinese scholar's rocks, ancient Greek marbles to twentieth-century anatomical medical models, Pre-Columbian Aztec pottery to Maoist revolutionary ceramics, each subject is accompanied by anecdotes as insightful and witty as the spaces they love to create.
Moving the monograph into the twenty-first century with digital recognition technology that allows readers to delve further into the collecting topics with links to the world's leading museums and art and antiques dealers, 'Stuff' offers an opportunity to learn in-depth about some of the world's greatest areas of collecting, and to find out about new areas of collecting you might not know existed. 'Stuff' is elegant, fun, full of fascinating and erudite information, and shows how great collections of wonderful, worldclass art are created, displayed, and integrated into day-to-day life - with wit and tongue firmly in cheek.

Описание: Collecting Antique Meerschaum Pipes: Miniature to Majestic Sculpture, 1850-1925 is an illustrated guide to the smoking utensils made of a mineral that has been used since at least the early 1700s and which is, today, still a popular material. In the last decade, a surge in interest in tobacco collectibles has already spawned many books on cigarette lighters, cigar-box labels, and snuff boxes and bottles. This book now comes at a time when antique meerschaums are taking center stage, and collecting them is like buying blue-chip stocks. Ben Rapaport is one of the few internationally recognized authorities on the subject of antique pipes, and in this, his second book published by Schiffer, he has created a powerful and convincing tour de force in word and picture that evidences why so many pipe collectors have a fervent passion for these exceptional works of art. Ranging from very diminutive and expressive cigarette holders to massive sculptured pipes, these instruments were produced by many talented, skilled, and unknown craftsmen working in a cottage industry trade 150 years ago. The caliber of their handiwork and the myriad imaginative meerschaums they produced cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world today. Now, this volume is a permanent record of their unrivaled genius.
