From the Publisher. Charles and Ray Eames are among the greatest designers of the 20th century. They are, of course, most well known for their groundbreaking and iconic furniture designs, but they also created important, creative, experimental, and beautiful work in the areas of architecture, exhibit design, textile design, product design, graphic design, toy design, film, and photography. This massive monograph celebrates Ray's centennial anniversary and the Eameses' incredibly diverse interdisciplinary work in depth, including many never-before-published images. Additionally, the book is authored by three generations of the Eames family, including quotes and essays by: Charles and Ray, daughter Lucia Eames, and all five of her children. This very intimate and loving tribute to the Eameses includes personal letters, family photos, and images that document the poetic ephemera of their everyday life, making this book the definitive Eames monograph.
