      by Eames Demetrios

      essays and quotes by the Eames family: Charles+Ray Eames, Lucia Eames, Carla Hartman, Byron Atwood, Lucia Dewey Atwood, Eames Demetrios, Lisa Demetrios

      edited by Gloria Fowler and Steve Crist

      “Eventually everything connects — people, ideas, objects...the quality of the connections is the key to quality per se...I don't believe in this 'gifted few' concept, just in people doing things they are really interested in doing. They have a way of getting good at whatever it is.” ― Charles Eames

      A must have for design/architecture/modernist lovers -- and a design object in itself -- this extraordinary 400 page coffee table book is overflowing with images of renowned designers Charles + Ray Eames's groundbreaking and iconic furniture designs, interiors, graphic design, textiles, toy design, film, and photography.

      Augmenting the abundant visual images are quotes and essays by the Eames family, including: Charles and Ray Eames, Lucia Eames, Carla Hartman, Byron Atwood, Lucia Dewey Atwood, Eames Demetrios, and Llisa Demetrios.

      Among the greatest designers of the 20th century, their distinctly postwar American enthusiasm and openness to the world around them gave them free license to explore work in many disciplines. This book celebrates the seamlessness and fluidity in which they operated as both a husband-and-wife team and as designers unrestricted by traditional professional boundaries.

      The Eameses brought a sense of humor and joy to everything they created, and the design and layout of this book aims to convey that spirit in a visual feast for the eyes. Select details of their life and work from their refined designs to their innovative experiments, and even including images depicting the everyday poetic moments of their life, are shared here in this exhibit within a book.

      Inspired by Charles's immersive and original slideshows, this book strives to visually celebrate the Eameses life and work by taking the viewer through a delightful journey focusing on their "beautiful details."

      "'Beautiful Details' offers something of a comprehensive overview, with chapters on all of [the Eameses'] various disciplines. But more than that, it is a personal document, edited by their grandson, Eames Demetrios... and featuring family photos, documents, and reminiscences." Los Angeles Times
      "Dive deep into the inspiring and collaborative work of Ray and Charles Eames with this vibrant exhibit-in-a-book by Eames Demetrios. The couple's art, joy, and zest for problem-solving design are on full display."Herman Miller
