The raw charm of rustic farmhouses, the inviting ease of country homes: New Romance presents romantic interiors inspired by modernity. Soft palettes, natural materials, and corresponding accessories create an atmosphere that produces both warmth and comfort. From country house to chalet, New Romance highlights the charm and grace of interiors. Soft classic tones and unfinished woods provide the look and feel of dreamy antiquity. Mudrooms and breezeways bring the bright airiness of rustic outdoor spaces within the walls of beautiful homes and residences. The classic lines and traditional textures nestled within a palette of pale grays and rose tones add to the visual storyline: soft and sophisticated, nostalgic and contemporary.

"Mr. Hoffmann's magisterial command of the vast Wright literature is matched by his gift for placing the architect in the broader cultural crosscurrents of his time … long a respected Wright authority, [he is in] the very forefront of his peers."—The New York Times Built in Springfield, Illinois, in 1902–04 for socialite Susan Lawrence Dana, the lavish home known as the Dana House was designed for extensive entertaining and for housing the owner's art collection. The house was the largest and most ornamental residence Frank Lloyd Wright had constructed up to that time. The lines, dynamic structure, decorative sculpture, and a thousand other felicities of this magnificent house are captured here in a handsome pictorial essay by noted architectural historian Donald Hoffmann. More than 160 rare photographs and line drawings—including interior and exterior views, plans, elevations, sketches, and studies—clearly document Wright's residential masterpiece. The informative and perceptive text discusses the history and background of the house; its site, plans, and construction; the elements and principles underlying its design, and many other aspects of the home's creation.

Artists have long explored the nuances of limited color palettes in their work, from El Lissitzky’s highly symbolic abstractions to Shepard Fairey’s iconic “Hope” poster. Recognizing the power of simplicity in conveying a succinct message without too much noise or artifice instantly changes the way we interact with these compositions, and allows for the subtle use of texture, form and layer to create interest and convey information in unique and innovative ways. Not limited to social or political commentary, designers too have been utilizing these techniques for a wide variety of applications, from book design and packaging, to brand identity and promotion. Less is More examines the very best of recent graphic design in one, two and three colors.

The modern yearning for vintage and classical design work is well-documented in Retro Graphics, an in-depth exploration of diverse applications of retro elements in modern graphic design. The first section, Evolution of Graphic Style, provides a deeper level of understanding of cultural connotations and context in design with explanations of movements, trends and styles from the 1840s to the 1990s. The second section, Retro Design, then reveals how designers capture the zeitgeist of an era and express it through modern media and design methods with a showcase of projects such as food and alcohol packaging, wedding programs, promotional materials, business identities, and more. Masterful retro design evokes the best part of a time or era, inspiring a sense of nostalgia in viewers or consumers not for what really was, but for what ideally could have been; Retro Graphics will show both design enthusiasts and professionals exactly how this can be done.

This book is a compilation of some of the more interesting town houses which have been recently constructed. We use recent examples for analyze the difficulty of integrating new residential volumes. If we had to highlight one characteristic from the projects presented here, it would be their ability to make the most out of their space in such crea­tive ways. Within the basic typology of flat between parallel walls, a world of possibilities open: spaces full of light, endless staircases, curtain walls, facades which spread completely out to the street or contrarily enclose into mysterious gardens and interior patios.
