From the publishers: More beautiful things for everyday use—this is the motto of those who pro-duce "the things around us" in the four Scandinavian countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The home and its furnishings have always held a central position in the lives of the Scandinavian people. A centuries old tradition of fine craftsmanship combined with modern technology is chiefly responsible for the unique Scandinavian style, combining practical utility and beauty of form, qualities that have attracted the attention and won the praise of the whole world.

"Scandinavian Design" is the first book in English to present a completely up-to-date, authoritative and compre-hensive survey of the applied arts of the northern countries. The lucid and informative commentary covers all the exciting aspects of design in Scandinavia. Included here are brilliant sketches of the artists and artisans and manufacturers. This beautifully produced book, with many superb illustrations in colour and black and white is for everyone— student and layman alike—interested in the modern applied arts of Scandinavia.     [Book ID # 707]
