Format: Hardcover
As a child this was how I saw the future, all square and round with colour and purpose. So imagine the grapple of my emotions to realise that the future was already in the past and everything I was waiting for was available to buy if I looked hard enough. And it was this book that helped me appreciate that.

I was introduced to this book by a girl I knew. I read it cover to cover, which is delightfully easy, I might add. Not many weeks after finishing it, and armed now with a head full of new knowledge and visions of beautiful pictures as remnants of my reading, imagine my surprise when I found a great example of an egg chair in a local curio shop. I got in touch with the author, Sally Hoban, to thank her for inspiring me via this book, to find her passionate about her field and an incredible authority on this topic and more besides.

If only all Miller's Guides were made this accessible, we'd all be buying up the past.
