“Ever since the end of the Second World War, Italian style, design and decoration have maintained an unprecedented predominance in the Western World. It was in the early 1950s that a great surge of decorative talent welled up in Italy, and this resulted in the ‘Italian look’ in clothes and in homes – a new standard of chic inventiveness.

The Italian view of interior design has been most enterprisingly expressed in the magazine Casa Vogue, which was founded in 1968 and has consistently been one of the most admired publications of Condé Nast International.

This book, garnered from the many issues of Casa Vogue, has been written and produced under the guidance of  Isa Vercellonim who has been its editor ever since its inception. The choice of picture-stories is intended to reflect the unusual and distinctive diversity of the magazine – ranging from traditional decoration to the more advance examples of minimal design, most the most significant  of contemporary buildings to the spectacular reconstructions and reconversions of old palazzi and coachhouses, from the ‘post modern’ to the ‘anti-modern’ and any other ‘moderns’ that may have been advocated recently. Italian trends naturally provide the main focus, but Casa Vogue also includes developments in the United States, France, Switzerland – indeed, wherever unusual and meaningful designs are being created.”

Birkin-coverBIRIKIN spread

Jane Birkin
par Gérard Lenne

The essential Jane Birkin book, by Gérard Lenne and published by Editions Henry Veyrier, Paris, in 1985. First and only French printing of this incredibly in-depth monograph on the great actress and singer, Jane Birkin. Scarce and very sought after today, this book, written by French film critic and writer Gérard Lenne, and made closely with Birkin herself, is both an intimate and revealing biography of her life and an important document capturing her diverse and challenging career as actress (working with Alain Resnais, Agnès Varda, Jean-Luc Godard, Michelangelo Antonioni, Jacques Doillon, Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Rivette, to name a few), model, singer, and much more – through countless photographs, film-stills and profiles of each of her films and records. Includes a discography, bibliography and videography (from “Blow Up” to “le Pirate”). A great publication of English/French film history and a must for any Jane Birkin fan.

* Condition: Very Good (tight, clean copy with only light, general wear) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Hi-Pop Design Series Alpha-15: Five Sensors of an Age
Tadao Ando, Takashi Sugimoto, Rei Kawakubo, Toshiyuki Kita, Masayuki Kurokawa

The first (and only) printing of the scarce “Hi-Pop Design Series Alpha-1: Five Sensors of an Age” published by the mighty Rikuyo-Sha Publishing house in Tokyo, 1985.

This beautifully designed, over-sized 383-page volume generously profiles five of Japan’s leading design practitioners of the 1980’s:

Architecture: Tadao Ando
Interior Design: Takashi Sugimoto
Fashion Design: Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garçons)
Industrial Design: Toshiyuki Kita
Product Design: Masayuki Kurokawa

Each designer’s section includes many photographs of their work of the 1980’s, as well as texts, their views on the design philosophy of the time and interviews in Japanese and English, making enough content to create an independent book on each designer! Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons section alone would make for a wonderful Comme publication in its own right.

Features an interview between fashion designer Rei Kawakubo and architect Tadao Ando entitled “Aesthetics of Monochrome”.

* Condition: Very good/fine – (Tight and clean copy in protective plastic sleeve) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
