I found out about this book in Andrew Haslam's exciting, learned, inspiring book 'Book Design'... And I can see why he included it. The covers are made of ply wood. But it's the designs inside that really make this book. You haven't lived until you've seen Frank Gehry's 'Cross-check chair' from 1990, or Peter Karpf's flowing, magic carpet-like '82USChair' from 2002... not to mention greats like Alvaar Aalto's Paimio chair from 1931. A beautiful, informative book, for fans of PLY everywhere.
