Modern design is at the cutting edge of the collecting field and is growing in popularity around the world, as collectors and museums recognise the importance of key designers of the twentieth century. Miller's Collecting Modern Design examines the major styles and movements from c. 1925 onwards, and looks at how these ideals translate into practical application in the context of collecting the decorative arts. Within each style - Modernism, Mid-Century design, Pop & Radical and Postmodernism - the key collecting areas are looked at in detail, illustrating the major players from Europe, the USA and the Far East. Furniture, ceramics, glass, metalwork, textiles and graphic arts are covered. 'Focus on' features look at key designers in depth; throughout the emphasis is on collecting. Why is one piece more valuable than another? Which designers hold their value and what are the names to keep an eye on? Experts offer market information with up-to-date price guides for every item and an international directory of specialists locates the experts both in galleries and auction houses. Additional information is given on where to go for restoration and repair, making Miller's Collecting Modern Design a book no collector can afford to be without.
