Описание: The electrification of the watch led to massive upheaval in the watch industry as mechanical chronometers built by Old World masters developed into electromechanical devices mass produced in Asia. In nearly 600 images and in-depth text, this book retraces the often circuitous paths that led from the electromagnetic pendulum clock to the modern quartz wristwatch. This well-researched volume focuses on the period between 1950 and 1985, but it also covers the long process of electrifying big clocks, which goes back to Alexander Bains 1841 patent for an electrically operated magnetic pendulum clock. But the crowning achievement of this process was the further miniaturization of the timepiece into the modern quartz wristwatch. Follow the many different technical developments in Switzerland, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, South Korea, and the United States and see detailed images of components, schematics, and complete wristwatch movements from hundreds of makers, including Bulova, Hamilton, Omega, Rolex, and Seiko. This is an ideal book for horologists as well as those interested in the history of science and industry.

Описание: "Lucien Lagrange: The Search for Elegance" is the story of one architect's mid-course adjustment, a journey of discovery from Modern to Classical and back
again, from disillusionment to renewed inspiration. At the heart of the book are Lucien Lagrange's projects, stunningly captured by William Zbaren and elucidated by Robert Sharoff in
detailed captions and a critical essay that provides background and context. Finally, there is a wide-ranging conversation with Lagrange where he discusses his early years at Skidmore
Owings & Merrill and his subsequent career as one of Chicago's most prominent architects."Lucien Lagrange: The Search for Elegance" will be of interest to anyone interested in the
history of architecture and design in the Post-Modern era as well as the evolution of one of America's most important cities.
It will be of particular interest to those interested in
the role history and context play in contemporary architecture and the opportunities they provide for innovative design.

Описание: The catalogues of the Paris Salons at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century provide a unique archive of illustrations of the decorative arts at a pivotal time in their development, the five previous volumes covering Jewellery, Furniture, Ceramics and Glass, and Objets d'Art. The fabric designers of the Art Nouveau style who exhibited at the Paris Salons produced a remarkable oeuvre in printed and woven fabric, silk, lace, embroidery and tapestry. Bookbinding was, and still is, a well-established French tradition, and bibliophiles commissioned unique bindings from artist-designers who, at the same time, were also creating and exhibiting non-bound leather goods - handbags, blotters, upholstery. This volume is probably the most important in the series. Because of wear and tear, practically none of the approximate 1,200 textile and leatherware pieces illustrated have survived outside museum collections or appeared at auction, unlike the items covered by the earlier volumes.
