An Eames Anthology collects for the first time the writing of the esteemed American architects and designers Charles and Ray Eames, illuminating their marriage and professional partnership of fifty years.

More than 120 primary-source documents and 200 illustrations highlight iconic projects such as the Case Study Houses and the molded plywood chair, as well as their work for major corporations as both designers (for Herman Miller, Vitra) and consultants (for IBM, Polaroid).

Previously unpublished materials appear alongside published writings by and about the Eameses and their work, lending new insight into their creative process.  Correspondence with such luminaries as Richard Neutra and Eero Saarinen provides a personal glimpse into the advance of modernity in mid-century America.
