Why We Love This

Homes of the Brave, by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1954. First Edition. 113 pages. Hardcover with dust jacket. The great midcentury designer had unkind words for traditional design styles in his first book, Good-bye Mr. Chippendale. Here, he pokes fun at modernism while setting aside a few pages to skewer his mortal enemy Elsie de Wolfe. Amusing and informative. Includes Mary Petty full-page pen and ink illustrations.
