First Edition, published by Cappelli Editore, 1963. A survey of Italian industrial and domestic design from the 1950s and early 1960s. Imaginative black and white photographs accentuate the aesthetic qualities of these objects. The front cover, for example, features a photo-collage taken from the voluptuous shape of a mold for a plastic clock. The book comes with a group of typewritten association letters in Italian and English between the publisher and a friend of the author. 

Condition: Very good. The book is complete with its original plain cardboard slipcase, faded at the edges. The jacket is complete and with some chipping to the edges and fading to the spine. Pages are clean and bright, with some fading to endpapers and edges of pages. Complete with publisher's letter (as described above). Overall in very good + condition.
