There appears to be no end in sight to the ongoing love affair with mid-century modern design. Still, it's curious that we keep hearing the same names again and again while so much inspiring work waits for its "moment" to be discovered. Antonin and Noemi Raymond are now ready for their close-up. "Crafting a Modern World" is the first comprehensive book in English on the duo that creatively transformed design from 1917 to 1966. Best known for a series of finely detailed structures built in Japan during the 1930s, the Raymonds had prolific careers that embraced designs from factories, office buildings, churches, and schools to furniture, fabrics, and graphic design.
