Self-published 1993 First Edition Wraps As Issued Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
Self-published, with help from Helen Drutt and others, 1993.

4 Bradford, Peter The Design Art of Nicos Zographos
Monacelli Press 2000 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 
Essays by Harry Wolf, George Lois, and Peter Blake, and many, many photographs. As you look, consider the choice of color or black and white to show Zographos's designs-I'd buy the book for its design. Of course, the minimalist style of Zographos is much in vogue and in demand right now, but the furniture is timeless. This copy in Fine hardcover with Fine dust jacket.

10 Simpson, Thomas Fantasy Furniture: Design and Decoration
New York Reinhold 1968 First Edition Hardcover Near-Fine Good+ Book 
A wonderful source book, part catalogue, part how-to. Mostly black and white plates: those in color are of works by Simpson, a Cranbrook graduate and a very humorous fellow indeed. The how-to section is mercifully brief. Among the oddities pictured are a chair and a table by Kate Millett and lots of Wendell Castle weirdnesses. A must-have, 60s or no. Binding is just slightly dusty but not musty; jacket is soiled to white ground and has moderate chipping and wear to spine ends and corners.
