"The scholarly, yet accessible, catalog, with its zippy, Pop design and multitude of striking illustrations, embodies the topic perfectly. It is fresh in both look and approach."--Kate Eagan Johnson, Antiques and the Arts Weekly
"After the solemnly revered austerity of prewar modernism and following the hiatus of war, design took a more playful turn. This book is a spirited reminder of those spirited days."--Stanley Abercrombie, Interior Design Magazine
"The design of this book also suggests the theme of its contents--that of design and play--with bright, colorful design elements. How play influenced mid-20th-century designers is explored in more than 200 illustrations and photographs of designers at work (or play) and examples of their work."--Maine Antique Digest
