Designer Todd Oldham and writer Kiera Coffee have created the ultimate tribute to seminal designer Alexander Girard. The 672-page book covers almost every aspect of Girard’s career, including textile and graphic design, typography, illustration, furniture design, interior design, product design, exhibit design, and architecture.  Examples of Girard’s repertoire including his bold, colorful, and iconic textile designs for Herman Miller, the Eameses, George Jensen and Eero Saarinen, his typographic designs for La Fonda del Sol restaurant and his celebrated retail store Textiles and Objects (1961) are all featured.

Girard’s work continues to inspire new generations of designers and have been integrated seamlessly into contemporary design through curated collaborations with companies like Kate Spade, Urban Outfitters, House Industries and Vitra appearing on textiles, wallcoverings, home accents and accessories. Oldham's own aesthetic is obviously influenced heavily by designers like Girard and so was perfectly suited to take on the project.

This book is published by Ammo Books.
