The Story of Eames Furniture

The Story of Eames Furniture

Weighing in at 800 pages, two volumes, and over ten pounds, The Story of Eames Furniture ($130) is the definitive look at one of the world's most iconic brands. Written by Marilyn Neuhart, who worked with the Eames' for nearly 30 years, this amazing tome covers all the bases, including Charles and Ray's lives, the Eames Office, and its contribution not only to furniture design — which is undeniable — but also to the evolution of the relationship between designer and manufacturer.

  • The Book of Bastards

    Any country that's lasted a hundred years or more has no doubt seen a few scandals, and the US of A is no exception. The Book of Bastards ($10) chronicles 101 of the most egregious scandals — and the people behind them — from America's first 234 years, including long-forgotten indiscretions by men such as Presidents Grover Cleveland and Warren G. Harding, traitors like General Wilkinson, and possible turncoats like Daniel Ellsberg. This would have made Coach Hall's American History class infinitely more interesting.

The handbook for the simpler life discusses music, fashion, grooming, drinking, and general living tips that can help you recapture a bit of America as it used to be, before the days of Internets and iPhones.
