Very nice, clean art catalog with a handsome blueprint cover designed by architect Michael Graves. The book focuses on architects who also designed furniture. The first to come to mind of course is Frank Lloyd Wright -- and he's in here -- but so are many more. The booklet begins with an overall essay by Lisa Phillips and from there spotlights individuals. These are Marcel Breuer 1902-1981; Charles Eames 1907-1978; Harvey Ellis 1852-1904; George Grant Elmslie 1871-1952; Ulrich Sanzen 1921 ----; Frank Furness 1839-1912; Frank O.
