Product Description

From the Inside Flap

"Eames: Beautiful Details" celebrates the seamlessness and fluidity in which Charles and Ray Eames operated as both a husband and wife team and as designers unrestricted by traditionally professional boundaries. Select details of their life and work, from their refined designs to their innovative experiments, and even including images depicting the everyday poetic moments of their lives, and are shared here in this exhibit within a book. The Eameses brought a sense of humor and joy to everything they created, and the design and layout of the book aims to convey that spirit in a visual feast for the eyes. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

This is a beautiful book: a collection of images which depict the Eames' philosophy and joie de vivre.
The pages of text interspersed between the pages of images provide a commentary rather than a continuous narrative.
If you already admire and enjoy their work and perhaps own some of their pieces, you will love every page and will find It is worth the money alone for the Charles' illustrated letter of proposal to Ray.
Perhaps the greatest warning is that it is thick, large format and very...very heavy. (a lot of case-bound book for your money) You need to look at it sitting at a table with the end boards supported.
My copy arrived in perfect condition; securely packaged in a large box.

This book is HUGE - not so much a coffee-table book as a coffee-table - and it weighs as much as a slab of wood, but you certainly get your money's worth. The quality is just superb - as you would like to expect from anything connected to Ray and Charles Eames - and the sizeable, glossy pages are packed with wonderful photos and informative text that will provide pleasurable viewing for a lifetime. if you have any interest whatsoever in the Eames world then this really is an essential purchase.

BEAUTIFUL WORK OF ART 29 Nov. 2012

Bought this book as an early Christmas present for myself, and I absolutely love it. Not only is the box it comes in gorgeous, but the entire book is amazing. I love flipping through to learn more about Charles and Ray Eames. This would make a great gift for anyone who loves design, architecture, etc!

WOW - FINALLY, AN AMAZING BOOK ON EAMES! 27 Nov. 2012
By ARTBOOKLOVER3000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What an awesome book on Charles and Ray Eames!
First of all, it is HUGE in size and has a really awesome colored slipcase and high quality construction.
Inside, the book offers a really comprehensive look at the life of Charles and Ray with many pictures I have never seen.
The writing is all by Charles and Ray - or various members of the Eames family - so it is also the first "official" book by the Eames Office and family. Quite a lovely tribute and now has a great spot on my coffee table!
I would highly recommend it as the ultimate EAMES book!

Beautiful Book / Stunning Object 4 Nov. 2013
By Proppa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was our second attempt at getting a Great book on Eames design and it's a fantastic one that feels definitive. The images are gorgeous and the writing is insightful and balanced well within the book. The slipcase is an object of beauty itself: vibrant and glossy beautifying whatever space you place it in. The best book I've found on Eames' history and works.

Beautiful Book 17 Jun. 2013
By Ed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this as a gift for a friend who owns several pieces of mid-century modern furniture. It's absolutely beautiful from cover to cover. Really interesting insight into how the Eames' creative process worked. The colorful box that it comes in makes a fantastic display piece.
