Book News
Hiesinger and Marcus (Phila. Museum of Art) have assembled 400 examples of industrial and graphic design, furniture, lighting, appliances, and decorative objects (100 photos in color). Arrangement is chronological. About half the average page is given to photos. Artifacts are related back and forward in time (direct cross-references would save index use). Good book. The title is accurate; landmarks does not suggest beauty (the 20th c. has produced myriad design horrors). Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
