Introduction Postcard Book


SKU: 70030 In Stock

Enter the world of the creative collective of Charles and Ray Eames.

This book of postcards, as the name indicates, should serve as a means of introducing one to the eclectic world of Eames photography. Images were key to the design process of the Eameses, whether it was capturing a chair postproduction, or various detail oriented close-ups of the materials that might be used, photography was essential. The images in this book are as interconnected with the world as the husband and wife duo themselves, ranging from a nasturtium leaf with morning dew to an extreme close-up of a fish’s eye, one never knew where inspiration might be met. As Charles ones said, taking a picture is like having your cake and eating it too; you got the pleasure of the moment, of taking the picture, and you got the pleasure of sharing it later.

Charles & Ray Eames


Charles and Ray Eames used photography as they did their films, to better understand the product, the project, the situation at hand, and then to see if their understanding of it changed with each photograph.  Close looking from every angle -- what Eames Demetrios wrote in his book, An Eames Primer, as "Charles and Ray took quite seriously the lessons learned from Eliel and Eero Saarinen of trying something out over and over."
