PATTERN BOOK OF UPHOLSTERY
(Fall 2013) NEW YORK SPACES The Goods Special Issue: "In The Frame"
Bauer and Dean's desire to revive a tradition of design pattern books dating to Vitruvius is the wellspring of its Pattern Book series, of which Upholstery is the latest entry. By David Michael Wood, illustrated by Anara Mambetova-Finkelstein, edited by William S. Hooper, with contributions by Jody Xuereb, it's a must have for serious students of design. With its encyclopedic array of seating forms, it includes history, insight into the upholsterer's perspective, a useful appendix, and more.
