Work on our new February Recent Acquisitions Catalog is almost done, and
it should be ready next week. In the meantime we just got three great new
publisher-overstock titles in about Viennese silver, the first celebrity
chef, and antique tiles-
Huey, Michael (ed.). "VIENNESE SILVER. MODERN DESIGN 1780-1918" Hatje
Cantz Verlag: 2003. Illustrated with more than 500 images, including 189
color plates, this volume presents more than 180 outstanding silver
objects from Vienna, of the period from Neoclassicism to the Wiener
Werkstatte. The book compares late 18th-century works with examples of
early 20th-century design and architecture, offering both a detailed look
at Vienna's unquestioned influence on the development of the modern
decorative arts and also evidence that the roots of modernism's spare,
clean lines go back further than is often assumed. Images from popular
culture-airplanes, rocket ships, sleek urban structures-are compared to
the tureens, tableware, and decorative items they inspired. Published in
conjunction with the loan exhibition at the Neue Gallery in New York and
the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Hardcover. 9.5x11.5, 398 pages,
b/w and color illustrations, dj. New. 
Published at $125.00.
Available for a limited time for $60.00
