Praise For Pierre Paulin: Life and Work…
"Capturing the designs of Pierre Paulin, whose internationally lauded work departed from the linear restraints of midcentury design, Pierre Paulin: Life and Work depicts a bygone era of sleek departure lounges and pop-era icons. . . . Paulin's fondness for bright colors seeps off the pages--even the book's edges are a bright blue."
"Pierre Paulin: Life and Work should be at the top of design lovers' reading lists."
"Pierre Paulin: Life and Work by Nadine Descendre [is] a sumptuous volume about a French classic of modernism. . . . Paulin's recognition long overdue, the book moves him up to the front burner."
"Nadine Descendre [offers] glimpses into the mind and character behind such classics as the Orange Slice chair. The effect is a slow-forming portrait of a conflicted and often controversial designer, colored with occasional bursts of detail from personal accounts, beautifully interspersed with radiant unpublished sketches, vivid models, and family photographs."
