McIlhany, Sterling Art as Design: Design as Art: A Contemporary Guide
New York/London Van Nostrand Reinhold Company / Studio Vista (c.1970) 0-289-27985-2 / 9780289279854 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dj
(price-clipped) [nice clean book, no discernible wear; jacket shows some light rubbing and very faint soiling, but would rate Near Fine if not for the price-clipping]. (B&W and color photographs; facsimiles) "Here is a book that ranges through all aspects of modern living, examining man-made things, discussing why they look as they do. The more than 250 illustrations come from museums, art galleries, picture archives, industry, science, advertising, the mass media, and artists and designers all over the country. . . . The book observes no artificial limits, but embraces design as a universal function of all man-made objects and shows how these objects are clues to the confusing, rapidly changing world we live in."
