Alexander Girard: A Designer's Universe

One of our favorite books of 2016 and a masterpiece of design scholarship that refuses to be uptight, Alexander Girard: A Designer's Universe is 512 pages of gorgeously printed joy, courtesy of the world's experts at Vitra Design Museum. Culled from the previously private archives of the designer's estate, this linenbound volume presents textiles, wallpaper, objects, interiors, exhibitions, showrooms, corporate and graphic design, as well as documentary photographs and items from Girard's own collection of more than 100,000 examples of international folk art. Featured image is the exhibition poster for The Nativity, organized by Girard in 1962. The show featured 170 nativity scenes from 20 different countries.
