Marie Flanigan: The Beauty of Home : Redefining Traditional Interiors
The Beauty of Home combines refined elegance and innovative simplicity for a fresh, new perspective on traditional interior design. Marie Flanigan's trademark style is evident through her sophisticated use of texture, color, and light. These components combine to create environments in which people love to live. The Beauty of Home details the specific design elements integral to Marie's creative process. Highlighting nine elements—architecture, composition, character, palette, illumination, detail, simplicity, depth, and surprise—each chapter begins with Marie's philosophy of design on that particular element, and is followed by photo collections of individual homes with commentary and meaning behind each image—how it specifically relates to the chapter element, and design as a whole. This is a sophisticated philosophy-of-design work, complemented by gorgeous photography featuring more than twenty diverse homes displaying custom furnishings, antiques, textiles, and fine art.

Djurdja Bartlett: FashionEast : The Spectre That Haunted Socialism
A richly illustrated, comprehensive study of fashion under socialism, from state-sponsored prototypes to unofficial imitations of Paris fashion.The idea of fashion under socialism conjures up images of babushka headscarves and black market blue jeans. And yet, as Djurdja Bartlett shows in this groundbreaking book, the socialist East had an intimate relationship with fashion. Official antagonism—which cast fashion as frivolous and anti-revolutionary—eventually gave way to grudging acceptance and creeping consumerism.  Bartlett traces the progress of socialist fashion in the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, East Germany, Poland, and Yugoslavia, drawing on state-sponsored socialist women's magazines, etiquette books, socialist manuals on dress, private archives, and her own interviews with designers, fashion editors, and other key figures.
