2 Catie Marron City Parks: Public Places, Private Thoughts
0062231790 / 9780062231796 Used; Like New 
Catie Marron’s City Parks captures the spirit and beauty of eighteen of the world’s most-loved city parks. Zadie Smith, Ian Frazier, Candice Bergen, Colm Tóibín, Nicole Krauss, Jan Morris, and a dozen other remarkable contributors reflect on a particular park that holds special meaning for them.
Andrew Sean Greer eloquently paints a portrait of first love in the Presidio; André Aciman muses on time’s fleeting nature and the changing face of New York viewed from the High Line; Pico Iyer explores hidden places and privacy in Kyoto; Jonathan Alter takes readers from the 1968 race riots to Obama’s 2008 victory speech in Chicago’s Grant Park; Simon Winchester invites us along on his adventures in the Maidan; and Bill Clinton writes of his affection for Dumbarton Oaks.
Oberto Gili’s color and black-and-white photographs unify the writers’ unique and personal voices. Taken around the world over the course of a year, in every season, his pictures capture the inherent mood of each place. Fusing images and text, City Parks is an extraordinary and unique project: through personal reflection and intimate detail it taps into collective memory and our sense of time’s passage.

Chairs: 1000 Masterpieces of Modern Design, 1800 to the Present Day, Fiell, Peter
5 Fiell, Peter Chairs: 1000 Masterpieces of Modern Design, 1800 to the Present Day
1847960340 / 9781847960344 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Is there any item of furniture more conducive to endless reinvention, more expressive of an infinite array of design sensibilities, than the chair? From Shaker and Mission styles to the innovations of Charles and Ray Eames, the chair has always represented the paramount incarnation of practical design in everyday life, and a distinctive chair design still has the power to entirely alter the feel and look of a space. This all-new survey of innovative seating designs, compiled by Charlotte and Peter Fiell, renowned authorities on the subject, showcases over 1,000 chairs by some of the world's greatest designers, from Alvar Aalto to Marco Zanuso. Here you'll find such outstanding furniture as a woven cane indoor/outdoor chair made by British designer Harry Peach circa 1913, the slats of its sides sloping gracefully as the frame of a harp; the red Baker sofa, designed by Finn Juhl in 1951, with the upper portion of its backrest seeming to hover in the air; and the NV-53 sofa and chairs, which showcased the marvelous flowing lines Danish craftsmen coaxed from teak. Each image in Landmarks of Chair Design is accompanied by a concise descriptive text outlining the item's design and historical context and an introductory essay details the main styles and developments that have occurred in seating design over the past 200 years. Furniture collectors, design lovers, fans and proprietors of design and furniture shops, interior architects and anybody who appreciates a chair that stands out from the crowd will all find this volume an indispensable resource.
