'The details are not the details. they are the design'. If anyone should know, it's Charles Eames, who we think would have loved this special issue of C20. 'My C20 Detail' takes a close look at architectural design, with 50 architects, designers, photographers and writers sharing their favourite architecture details with us. Drainpipes, ceilings, brackets and lettering all make the grade in this fascinating close-up.
A beautiful, compact 12 x 12cm book
