Rachel Delphia & Jewel SternSilver To Steel – The Modern Designs Of Peter Muller-Munk (hardcover) ... Book
Prestel (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 60.00
A treasure trove of beautiful objects designed at mid-century – all creations of designer Peter Muller Munk – German by birth, and part of the wave of creative talent to come to America during wartime – which meant that we got to reap all the benefits of Peter's genius! Famous Muller Munk creations include the Waring blender or Bissell vacuum cleaner – but the book also shows early tableware, revolutionary kitchen design, transportation efforts, and even his famous Unisphere from the 1964 New York World's Fair! The book is heavy, oversize, and in full color – even more lovely inside than the cover – with 208 large pages that also include a lot about the designer's life and career. Book

✨✧ Barney Hoskyns, edJoni – The Anthology (hardcover) ... Book
Picador, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Barney Hoskyns is normally the writer – but this time around, he acts as editor – to pull together a wealth of writing on the lovely Joni Mitchell – from early press at the start of her career, to reviews of her records from major press outlets of the 70s, to important reflections on her work in more contemporary years! Think of the book as The Joni Mitchell Reader – as it features dozens of articles and essays – pulled together in chapters that have a roughly chronological approach, even though some feature later writings from beyond the years of the chapter – in a total of 310 pages, in a hardcover volume. Book

✨✧ Ramon Norwood (Radius)Improvisational Aesthetics in Black & White ... Book
Blurb/Etc, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful little DIY black & white photography book by Ramon Norwood, aka Radius Etc, the multi-talented Chicago abstract hip hop producer, beatmaker and artist! We don't fancy ourselves art critics here at Dusty Groove, but we know Radius's sound, and for us it's pretty nice to see how his straight-forward snapshots of the world through his eyes translate into his hazy beautiful beats and production – but this is all visual and it's a wonderful view whether you've heard him, or are only seeing his photos – of a lovely old building through a tagged doorframe, a cloudy distant Chicago skyline, lonely souls on a commuter train, stacks of records calling you from another room and lots of other stark but storied shots. It's a slim book you can flip through a little too fast – just 56 paperback pages – but we keep coming back to it! Book

Peter WilliamsEnglish Seaside ... Book
English Heritage (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 29.98
A lovely look at the British seaside – the coastal resorts that have provided a crucial respite to city-dwellers for many years – and which have evolved into special spots all their own! We all know the parodies of these places from Fawlty Towers and Quadrophenia – but the British seaside towns have had an undeniable impact on changes in culture over the decades – and are given their due here, in a full-color book that's overflowing with photos! Chapters are short, but follow lots of different themes – wartime relics, joke shops, art galleries, model villages, shipwrecks, telephone booths, and even donkeys. 208 pages, full color, softcover, illustrations throughout.
