If you’re a fan of designers Charles and Ray Eames, or just fans of good design in general, this is the book for you. Eames: Beautiful Details is a visual history of the designing duo whose work included architecture, furniture, textiles, products, graphic design, toys, and photography. Even those who are unfamiliar with the designers will swoon at this beauty of a book. A smaller, more affordable reprint of the 2012 original (which was $200), Beautiful Details is a great companion for anyone with an eye for style and a mind for design.
