Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the 20th century draws to a close, the latest entry in the realm of historical surveys and overviews is this eclectic and visual treat, which includes many of the best-known examples of international modern culture, from architecture to fashion, furniture to communications and transportation, advertising to homeware products. Among the noteworthy mentionables are Armani, Le Corbusier, Gamble House, Tiffany Lamps, Tupperware, Porsche, Campbell's soup cans, Volkswagen, and Sony Walkman. Each of the over 360 entries provided by McDermott, a frequent contributor to style and design magazines, gives basic information on the item, including date, location, designer, material, manufacturer, and client as well as a brief description of its significance. The nontraditional layout enhances the items displayed. Recommended for both reference and circulating collections in all types of libraries.Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ.
