Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the book I scoured my local bookstores for after seeing Eames: The Architect and the Painter at the cinema. It is a substantial over-view of the Eames' work year by year, with a biog bit each of Ray and Charles. As an artist I find the enthusiastic and innovative thinking of the couple a great resource to draw from. If you're interested in Modern furniture or architecture or creative ideas applied through a wide range of work and home life this quality tome is well worth a look.

A stunning visual record of a great American design team 20 Oct. 2001
By Robin Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is THE book about Charles and Ray Eames. Beautifully printed and designed and with more than 3500 photos to explore the work, year by year, of these two famous designers. The range of work is amazing, furniture (domestic and commercial) films, exhibitions, architecture, books even toys. I have a set of their 1952 House of Cards, a deck of fifty-four playing-card size cards that can be interlocked to create three dimensional structures, a very simple idea beautifully conceived.

If I have a criticism it is that the book does not have an index and that makes refering to it rather frustrating.

I think the book easily reflects the joy and stimulation that Charles and Ray Eames got out of the creative process.

2005 REVIEW NOTE Many of the pages in the book are devoted to the short films Charles and Ray created, you can get thirty-five of these on a wonderful six DVD box set 'The Films of Charles & Ray Eames' (ASIN B0009S2K92) they are available individually but cost a lot more than the box set.

Excellent Survey of Eames Studio 30 July 2000
By Raymond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent survey of the work of the Eames studio. It provides a chronological survey of the furniture, films, exhibits, and other work of the studio. It even provides a listing of the Eames staff at each point and time. Lavishly illustrated, it provides photographs of furniture, exhibits, and stills from the over 100 films produced by the Eames's. Highly recommended as the one book you must have about their work.

The Definitive Text 13 April 2001
By Whyseenyc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An exceptionally comprehensive year-by-year summary of the work of the Eames Office from the early 1940s to the late 1970s. Covers everything equally -- from wartime plywood experiments and herman miller furniture to toys, exhibitions, and, of course, films. A must for anyone interested in Eames design. Full of hard-to-find information and photos of rarely seen items.

A must read book about the greatest American designers of the 20th Century. 15 Jan. 2006
By Availar James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Charles and Ray Eames were not only creative artistic talents, they were also commercial geniuses (just like George Nelson was). These two talents provided the secret for success that would reward them throughout their life. This book gives in debt view about the vast creative inspiration that Charles and Ray Eames had. It documents in detail how Charles and Ray Eames got their early start (working on projects for the army among others) and how they expanded their line with Herman Miller.

The book covers the entire span from 1940 to the 1970's.

And everything is included, from their early plywood chairs, art and films. The stills that the book includes from their films are truly wonderful. This is a wonderful coffee table book, a joy to browse through. If you like modern design I also suggest to visit the wonderful online archive about George Nelson at WWW.GEORGENELSON.ORG and also the museum archive from Verner Panton at WWW.VERNERPANTON.COM
Truly a beautiful collection of photos and detail. 10 Mar. 2013
By Hondagirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Set out in a time line, this book has just enough detailed information and an abundant collection of photographs and pictures. A great book for serious design enthusiasts and for novices.
