A treat for what it brings to light of the pre-war modern
home-style sensibility that blends modernist abstraction with
representational floral motifs--and an unusual typographic
sensibility. You may still find it hard to remember the name but
the work is unforgettable.--Steven Heller "Print Mag "
A comprehensive volume that presents the personal voice...[and] comes to illuminate the career of this designer who came to shape a new sensibility of the American home.--Daniella Ohad "Daniella on Design "
Mergentime's designs, whimsical and self-aware, are the book's main draw, and they speak for themselves.--Mayukh Sen "Food52 "
Once in awhile I come across a book which delights and informs in equal measure. This is one such book that offers an inspiring archive of designs appealing to those with an appreciation of pattern and colour, as well as those with an interest in typography, language and the social and cultural history of America.--Rebecca Hoyes "Selvedge "
