And I just received my numbered - 530 - copy today!
Only Focal made it to the book in terms of French manufacturers, with a very good interview of Jacques Mahul.
Cabasse is briefly mentioned in the "Oddities and Wonders" section! No trace of Elipson or Charlin, brands that were never exported to the USA and obviously of no or little interest to our American colleagues...
The book focuses mainly on famous American and British brands and is well structured, with many timelines and good stories, some unknown to me, like the fact that Lansing committed suicide over the threat of bankruptcy!
Beautiful photos and archival documents are smartly presented in a dynamic and clean format. I have started reading a few interviews of some of the still alive and famous designers and can't wait to go through all of them!
I will keep you posted on any other anecdote or piece of trivia that I will find interesting over the coming weeks.
